The statewide Rhode Island Summer Reading Program is supported by the RI Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS), with funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Friends of Mohr Public Library.
The following are independent groups and may become full, so please contact email@example.com or leave your name and number at the desk so that we can confirm space with the program leaders. If they do become full, feel free to talk with us about how you can start your own group.
Mondays at 6 pm, Coloring Group
Coloring for adults is meditative and fun way to relax, and for some it's a way to socialize. This group meets downstairs in the Library meeting room starting at 6 pm.
Fridays at 10 am, Knitting Group
Saturday mornings beginning after Labor Day, Italian Classes
Let us know about your interest in Italian class and we'll put you in touch with the instructor who runs this popular program.
Aug. 16-20, Monday through Thursday from 9-8 and Friday 9-6
Choice inventory will be spread out along with other materials as we reorganize the regular ongoing booksale shelves. This is your chance to catch some of the extensive inventory while it lasts.
Reading by Author Michael Fine
Dr. Michael Fine, a novelist with a deep background in family medicine and health care, will read from his new collection of short stories or other work in progress. His stories, often set in Northern Rhode Island, are beautiful and empathetic, and Dr. Fine is a wonderful storyteller to hear and talk with.
We had posted a time previously but are possibly rescheduling. Please speak with Jon if you might be interested or would like a copy of the book.
You can find more information on Dr. Fine and his books at https://www.michaelfinemd.com
