Happy New Year!!!
Hard to believe, but the New Year is here!!
There are some new things going on at the Library too. Stop in and see the changes. We also have some things in store for you. Watch facebook and stop in to find out what's happening.
1. Ada is offering her famous "one-stroke" painting class again. Sign up quick as space is limited. Classes begin Jan. 10 and run each Saturday from 9:30-11:30 am. This is a four week session and it is so much fun.
2. Book club is starting up again Jan. 13 and will be held every two weeks on Tuesdays from 11:00-noon. We will be thoroughly learning books and have heady discussions on them. This book will be The Scarlet Letter by Hawthorne. This is going to be good. Be sure to join in.
3. Drum Beat Erie will HOPEFULLY be here on Jan. 17 at 1:00pm. This will be weather dependent.
Stay tuned for more "happening" things. Watch facebook, but mostly stop in and see what is going on. This is a fun place to be and a great place to get in out of the cold.
