Fall Events for Adults


Pumpkin spice and sweater weather – Fall is the perfect time to stop by the Library for a book to read next to the fire. We have a full calendar, from new Sunday Classic Musical Films to essential oils, and local authors to art classes and everything in between…including a Fun Run! Take a tour of the Event Calendar for more information or to RSVP.  Stay on the look out for a new Fall Adult Programs brochure – we have SO MUCH planned, we have TOO many flyers and want to save paper…

Thank you to Jane, Pam, Marilyn, and Tetjana for their help planning these great events.

Thank you, too, to our wonderful teachers: Theresa for yoga, Bob for the Socrates Cafe, Lynn for the new Chair yoga course, and Marianne for the new Classic Musical Films series.
