Drop-In Writing Workshops
Are you interested in writing fiction of your own? Is there a play or short story you can't seem to finish? For the month of March, our fiction specialist and resident writer Kevin will be leading fiction workshops every Thursday at 3pm for anyone interested.
Each workshop will focus on a different element of writing (plot, character, conflict and structure) and writers can bring in pieces to get feedback. To sign up, please see Kevin at the Circulation Desk.
The library's Book Club meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 3pm to discuss a different book. Copies of the book are reserved for all members for your convenience. In addition to the selected books of the month, we discuss other books we've read and talk about suggestions for possible selections. On April 7th, we'll be reading An Italian Wife, a sprawling family saga by Rhode Island author Ann Hood.
Play Reading Series
On the last Tuesday of every month at 6pm, we bring in local actors to read a fantastic piece of theater and discuss the play with patrons. We've read everything from classics such as The Seagull to contemporary work to brand new plays never before read in front of an audience. On March 31st actors will be coming in to read Moliere's famous comedy Tartuffe.

Starting This June
We’re starting a new program at the library to make it easier to get the newest titles sooner rather than later. If there’s a particular author you want to keep tabs on, give the Circulation Desk your name and the names of the authors you like and we’ll make sure to put your name on hold for them as soon as they put out new books. Get ready to kiss those long lines good-bye!
For more information, or to receive email notices of events, contact us.
