Other Happenings

Adult Book Club:  Meets Tuesday, December 10, 2019 in the library from 6:30 – 9:00pm.  This session we’ll be reading the NY Times best seller, Life With Picasso by Francoise Gilot.  Synopsis:  “Her candid memoir remains the most revealing portrait of Picasso written, and gives fascinating insight into the intense and creative life shared by two modern artists. It is an indispensable record of Picasso’s thinking about art, as well as an often very funny account of his relationships with other artists and with dealers and hangers-on.  It is also about Françoise Gilot. This is a brilliant self-portrait of a young woman of enormous talent and exacting intelligence figuring out who she wants to be.” (Amazon)

Volunteer Alert!  Media Maven Volunteer(s) needed. The person currently maintaining our website and Facebook page is 77 years old (that’s me)! It is about time we found someone younger who knows how to best use our current and new digital media outlets to show the world what our library offers. A maven is an ‘expert’ and that’s what we need. If you have the skills, are creative, and would like to showcase your talents, we can provide the opportunity. Build your resume while helping build the library’s community presence. Contact Curt Bayer at 570-596-3086, or Library Director Steve Bolt at the library.
