Adult Programs

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 schedules and upcoming titles can be found on the After-Dark Book Club page and 2nd-Friday Book Club page.
  • Summer Reading Bingo for Grownups: This competition is for adults and teens grades 9 and up. Staring June 15th, you can pick up a bingo page or download one here (with instructions.) Try to complete a bingo with a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line by writing down the books you read over the summer in the appropriate boxes (you may not enter a title more than once.) Participants who complete a bingo will be entered in a drawing to win a brand-new Kindle! The deadline to turn in your cards is Friday, September 30, 2022. For more information, email ngross@wlsmail.org.
  • Computer Instruction: We generally offer instruction in Word; Setting up an eMail account; Researching using Databases; Downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks. Please call the Library to make an appointment.
