Readers Who Lunch
Third Thursday of each month, at noon.
Readers are invited to bring a brown bag lunch to the Library at Noon to eat with us and join our lively discussion. Sometimes we visit a local restaurant instead of meeting at the library, so please call the library to verify the location, or to find out the current month's title.
Third Saturday of each month, 9am, at the library, though sometimes we visit member gardens for the meeting. Please call the library to verify the month's location.
Club attendees chat about plants, lawn maintenance, weed management, insect removal, et cetera. No topic too large or small for our gardeners.
2nd, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays of each month, 10am. Quilters of all experience levels come to the library to work on a project, to talk about technique, or to chat with other quilters about anything related to sewing and fabrics.
Late November or early December, 6-8:00 pm. The library's annual fundraiser, a fresh wreath making class. We provide the greenery, the ribbon, and the ornamental plants and accessories to create one-of-a-kind decorations for your home. Greenery holds its scent for at least a month, allowing makers to enjoy their hard work through the New Year. We provide light refreshments and good company while you construct your holiday wreath. Call the library for specific dates and to reserve your seat. Space is limited and fills quickly.
