The Knitting Circle meets every fourth Thursday of the month at 1:00 PM.  Our Circle is informal and open to all fiber artists, not just knitters.  We provide space, light, and good company with which to share ideas and inspiration. Our group meets on the first floor of the library in the Popular Materials Room. Bring your fiber project and join us!  *There will be no meetings in December - see you on January 28th!

Cinematic Escapes presents "Culinary Delights"
All showings begin at 7:00 PM in the Community Room

Our autumn film series is an eclectic mix of films which all have one thing in common:  Food.   Our cinematic buffet begins with a visit to a struggling Italian restaurant in 1950’s New York and is followed with a sidelong road trip through California Wine Country.  These will be paired with the tale of a modern woman following in Julia Child’s footsteps, and garnished with a couple of scrumptious foreign films along with an animated Pixar classic.  Bon Appetit!
