Play Reading Series
Special Double Reading Tuesday, June 18 and 25 at 5:30 pm.
Our play readings are so popular we’re doing two this month! We’re keeping the titles top secret, but we promise two evenings of theater that connect to one another in some way. Could we be reading the first act of a show and then the second? Could we be reading two different plays with the same author? Join us to find out!
For more information contact Kevin.
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!
Summer is Here!
Our fiction specialist Kevin is here to help you find the best summer romances, blockbuster thrillers, and breezy beach reads to make this summer a great one. Stop by the Circulation Desk and find out about all the hot summer reads and find out what books everyone’s talking about.
