Programs

Movie Madness:

We are showing family movies on Thursdays at 4:00 PM. Check our front page or our Facebook page for current titles.

Pember Peapods:

This group meets every Tuesday at 10 AM led by either Holly or Carol. The stories, songs, and games are geared to preschool children. Parents / caregivers should plan to stay with their child for this program.

Lego Club:

Meet after school on Wednesday to build with Legos. We have books and magazines to give you ideas for building or you can start from scratch and design your own

A Good Yarn:

This group meets on Wednesday 3:00 -4:30 PM to work on  their current knit or crochet project and help each other learn new techniques.

Beginner and experienced knitters and crocheters are encouraged to teach each other and to learn from each other. The library will provide space for crafters to meet and to socialize while working on their yarn projects. The library will have a limited amount of yarn, crochet hooks, and knitting needles for people to try the crafts before they invest money in needed equipment. Basic stitches will be taught and more advanced techniques can be researched through books and online resources. Please call the library for additional information

Learn with Linda:

One Saturday each month, Linda will present a program with crafts and stories.  This program usually begins at 11:00 AM. Check the Event Calendar for details.

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.
