Adult/Teen Programs

FOTAGL MEETINGS:

The FOTAGL Board of Directors meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 9AM in the library.  All FOTAGL members are invited to attend.  Due to COVID-19 precautions, we have cancelled our annual meeting.  Regrettably, this means we have had to postpone our annual election & our annual membership raffle.  Since the pandemic restrictions, our Board has been meeting “virtually” via zoom.  This allows us to be safe and connected.

Meeting via zoom

VETERAN’S CENTER:  CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Reminder that the library now offers services to Veterans on Mondays & Tuesdays.  Call Yvette Mason at 781-5766 for an appointment.  Come see the new “Veterans’ Office” now open in the library

*****ALL GROUP CLASSES AT THE LIBRARY HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH & APRIL & MAY!*****

Our library Summer Reading, Imagine Your Story, for kids, teens and adults is going online this year. Beanstack, found through the app store or on a banner on our website, will allow participants to register and track their reading – no more paper logs to keep track of! 

The program runs from June 1st to July 31st. All fami-lies need to do is create a Beanstack account and regis-ter everyone who wishes to participate. Everyone – in-cluding babies, teens, and adults – can join in. Then the logs can be accessed through the free Beanstalk app, available for both iOS and Android devices, or on a computer by linking through the library website. Log reading time to earn badges and certificates! 

There will be prize raffles for kids, teens, and adults. Kids can win a bike, Lego sets and more. Teen prizes include DIY maker kits, bikes, and coffee gift cards. Kids earn tickets for reading and for participating in activities or writing book reviews. 

We will also be hosting great online entertainment– mindfulness videos, digital photography instruction, craft videos, science videos and more, so check us out! Follow us on Insta-gram, Facebook, and Twitter to learn about new activi-ties and fun summer challenges.
