Join us in the program room on the first and third Wednesday of every month for Odd Wednesdays, a new program series for teens. Programming will be anything from movie nights and game nights to just an open space to hang out with your friends in the library. So stop by every first and third Wednesday to see what's going on!
Are you a teen with an idea for a teen program? Join our Teen Activity Group (TAG) and earn volunteer hours for planning programs! Ask how at an Odd Wednesday activity.
Stop by the library each month for coffee and discussion about things that matter to you.
Over coffee and snacks, we will share what’s on our minds, keep each other informed about what’s happening in the neighborhood, and make new connections.
All are welcome!
Don't miss S.T.E.A.M. Team! Every month we’ll do a different hands-on activity exploring Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Monthly activities include science experiments, tech demonstrations, graphic design, mathematical games and more.
All supplies included—just bring yourself.

Some Book Suggestions from the Coffee Taster's Flavor Wheel
We are a mid-week in our two-part Saturday morning coffee tasting program. This past Saturday, as we sipped our delicious coffee and rich talk from Peregrine Espresso and Madcap Coffee, we learned about the complex and poetic vocabulary that coffee lovers use to describe what they are drinking.
Your memories of your favorite childhood stories are probably shaped and shaded by their illustrations -- Maurice Sendak's fascinating wild things; Beatrix Potter's mixture of science and whimsy; Eric Carle's bold, bright collages; or my favorite, W.W. Denslow's old-timey pen-and-ink drawings of Oz. When it comes to illustrated books, and picture books in particular, the artwork is at least as important as the words. Here are five fairly recently published books for kids with truly memorable artwork.
Come see Louis Bayard, author of "Roosevelt's Beast."
