We have discontinued this program due to low attendance.

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.

Learn with Linda:

One Saturday each month, Linda will present a program with crafts and stories.  This program usually 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.

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.
