Movie Madness:

We have recently begun a series of movies at the Pember the third Friday of each month.

Due to licensing restrictions, we can’t list the titles we will be showing online but there will be posters and bookmarks in the library. We plan to alternate classics with newer releases.  Call the library for more information.

Learn with Linda:

One Saturday each month, Linda will present a program with crafts and stories.  This program begins at 10:30 AM. Check the Event Calendar for details.

Adult Book Club:

The  Book Club meets once a month to review and discuss books: current titles, fiction, autobiographies and literature. Come share your opinion and enjoy meeting with friends and neighbors. Check the Event Calendar for the latest titles. The club has decided not to meet in December.

Teen Book Club:

Time to be announced. Review and discuss books, and enjoy time with friends.  We’re looking for a parent adviser for this group.  Please call the library to discuss volunteering.

Computers for Seniors:

These are computer courses aimed at providing beginner and intermediate instruction including email and the Internet for senior citizens.

We hope to have additional classes in the spring 2013. We have gotten a grant for this through the Washington County Home for Aged Women and additional funding from the Friends of the Pember Library.

Summer Reading Program:

During the summer, we encourage school-aged children to continue reading by offering a NYS sponsored reading program.  There are programs for beginning readers through elementary school students and a separate program for teens.

Throughout the summer, by reading books, children earn rewards including more books, in addition to making crafts and sharing time together.
