Book and Brown Bag-The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing

Bring your lunch and join in this friendly book group. We want to hear from you. We meet  in the Safford Room of the Library.  The library will have several lending copies available.


We are pleased to offer a comfortable easy space for new parents

Baby Time–Babies and their grown ups welcome for social and playtime every week. This is an informal social time and stimulating fun of seeing little ones their own size.




A reminder that the library has a small but nice collection of jigsaw puzzles to lend.  Most are 500-1,000 pieces, so of course, we’ll adjust the borrowing period accordingly.

Cary  invites all needleworkers who are looking for a comfortable sunny spot to work on any project with like-minded folks for a couple hours each Saturday.  We provide a space with easy chairs and table space with a view of the water and eagles. Bring your project and share some time together.

After discussion with participants, we have decided to postpone the start of Saturday Knitting Circle until Sat. Jan. 5.  See you then for this sharing opportunity.
