Clean and Green series

This series focuses on being more environmentally conscious. With presentations focusing on being more sustainable, homeopathic and natural. Past workshops have included creating natural tonics and growing your own garden. We are exploring topics of growing your own food, foraging, gathering seeds and more. Let us know if you have a specific interest you want to see included!


Older and Wiser series

This series of presentations is geared to our older generation. While anyone can attend, these subjects will be tailored to those who have become wiser through experience. Subjects such as keeping your mind sharp, palliative care, elder abuse and senior nutrition are a few we explore here at the Library

Memory Lane: Adult Storytime: Come to the Library on the Second Tuesday of each month at 10:30 for an adult storytime. This unique experience gives an opportunity for those suffering from memory loss and their caregivers to come for a read aloud followed by an activity.  


Adulting

Interactive and hands on, this series is geared to our new and seasoned adults. It focuses on teaching valuable life skills and exploring those subjects that everyone should know but not everyone has been taught. Subjects such as budgeting, taxes, job skills, mental health and more.
