Libraries are not just for kids! Pick up a good mystery, attend an interesting event, learn a new language in the car, or conduct research for your business on one of our databases- all things are possible with the help of the library.

Adult Summer Reading Club

Repeat Reads

At the Plumb Memorial Library on Friday, 8/28, at 6:00PM.  Adults re-read (or read for the first time) classic favorites from youth.  This month it’s The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Copies of the book are available, and new members are welcome.  Come debate its merits and values, share tea and snacks – drop-in for a reader’s Happy Hour! Members are asked to bring nominees for the next 6 months so we can create a new reading list.

First Friday Book Discussion

At the Huntington Branch Library on 8/1 at 1:00 PM. An Invisible Thread, by Schroff and Tresniowski, will be discussed. This book is about an 11 year old panhandler and a busy sales executive – an unlikely meeting with destiny. Books are available at the Huntington Branch Library.  September’s selection will be The Paris Wife by Paula McClain.
