Summer Streams and Online Programs

With the start of our summer reading program, in-person events are back, but don't let that confuse you—there are still library happenings that meet virtually! Below is a short list of what to look out for in our event calendar.

Book Clubs

Yes, we have ongoing book clubs that meet online! The list this summer includes Brown Bag Book Club, ESL Book Club, and Stay Woke: A Social Justice Book Club. These all meet at different times and require registration in advance, so sign up now!

ESL Conversation Groups

Our ESL (English as a Second Language) conversation groups program offers a friendly and informal environment for adults over 18 years of age to practice speaking and listening in English. These groups do require preregistration to join, so be sure to read the full event details.

Family Storytimes

Join us on Facebook at 11 AM on Mondays for all-ages stories, songs & more! Pre-registration (or a Facebook account) is not required to join in, but you will need an account for the chatroom and those fancy emoji reaction buttons.

Twitch.tv

Similar to our events on Facebook, you do not need a Twitch account to watch our game streams, but you will need an account to share your gaming knowledge when we stream Teach a Librarian How to Play Videogames every other Thursday at noon.

External Events

Occasionally we also host free presentations and online workshops from partner organizations that we think you'll want to know more about. These will always have the words "external event" added to the title so they're easy to find.

Schedule Updates

Regardless of your choice, don't forget to follow us on social media and sign up for our monthly email newsletter. I assure you, this blog post will go stale over time, and a lot of our coolest events are so special they only happen once, so don't miss out because you didn't know!
