Make It, Take It is a class where we “make” crafts to “take” home. It is held on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 3 p.m. Some projects will be finished in one session, but others may take a little more time. Examples of some of the crafts we might make include paper crafts, felt ornaments, and designing a kaleidoscope. If you would like to join us, please let us know at least two days before the scheduled session so we can have enough supplies on hand.

If you are in high school and you love to read, then be our book buddies and come join our Teen Book Club. We meet on the third Monday of each month at 4 p.m. Each month, we will choose a book to read, and when we come together again at the next meeting, we will discuss our thoughts about it. It is okay if you end up not enjoying the book. There are no wrong opinions! This month we are reading “I Am the Messenger” by Mark Zusak.

Our writer’s group is open to writers of all skill levels from high school and up. We meet on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 4 p.m. Join us for a fun time of writing, discussions, workshops, and support with like-minded people. All you need is a pencil, some paper, and your imagination.

The library has a book sale in the front entryway. With a variety of books to choose from, there is something for everyone at a great price that cannot be beat. Come see what we have to offer!
