In September, the Library will kick off its new book club with “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng.  The book club will meet monthly thereafter with the exceptions of December and the summer months.  The book club will mix fiction and non-fiction and include snacks and lots of good conversation.  The first Book Club meeting will be on Tuesday, September 18th at 7:00 pm at McCowan Library.

 

In October, the Library will be participating in the Festival That Must Not Be Named.  The Festival was a great success last year, and we look forward to it being even better this year.  Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram for more details on the Library’s activities during the Festival.  The Festival will take place on October 20th between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
