Events for Adults:

Genealogy (every 1st Saturday, 10 am)

Now that evenings are getting dark earlier, we have decided to move Genealogy Club to Saturday mornings at 10:00am. Welcome in the new year by looking at your past. We’ll be here to help you on January 3, 2015!

Book Club (every last Thursday, 7 pm).

The holidays this year fall on Thursdays so the Book Club is skipping straight to the new year. On January 29 we will discuss Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem. Check out a copy and join us!
