The Library strives to present a variety of literary, cultural and educational programs in keeping with the spirit of both the Library’s Mission and Program Policy Statements.
The Library has three program seasons: Fall, Winter/Spring and Summer. We aim to have our seasons planned in advance. Annually, we host our:
- Monthly Book Clubs whose schedule and upcoming titles can be found on the Book Club page.
- Computer Instruction: A series of 4 classes are usually offered 3 times a year. We generally offer instruction in Word; Setting up an eMail account; Researching using Databases; Downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks.
- On a Saturday in March or May we usually host a Resume Clinic, where people bring in their resume to review by appointment, with a Career Counselor from the Career & Educational Counseling Service (WEBS).
We love to have our local authors come to present and discuss their books. Over the years we’ve hosted New York Times bestselling author Lorenzo Carcaterra, editor and travel writer Mark Adams, food and travel columnist John F. Mariani, New York Times labor and workforce reporter Steven Greenhouse, novelist and short story writer Kathleen Hill, Yale’s Chester D. Tripp Professor of History Paul H. Freedman, political journalist and columnist Joe Klein, journalist and author Fen Montaigne, and writer/novelist Lynn Schnurnberger, to name a few.
