Cards and Board Games

At the Huntington Branch Library on Wednesday, 1/27, 2/24, 3/23, and 4/27, at 11:00 AM.  This monthly program hopes to entice adults to get out of the house this winter for some fun. The Friends of the Shelton Libraries are providing an assortment of games, dessert and beverages; you just need to bring your sense of humor and a bag lunch. Then, consider staying for As I See It – watch a movie and weigh its merits over MORE dessert!

As I See It

At the Huntington Branch Library on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, 1:00PM. Join the Friends of the Shelton Libraries as we watch a variety of movies, followed by a lively discussion and dessert.
