TONIGHT!!! Tuesday, August 18th!! AT 6 pm!! There is still room! Call us to let us know you’re coming!!

What is a Zentangle, you ask?

“The Zentangle Method (of Doodling) is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.

Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.

We believe that life is an art form and that our Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.” from

Closing Day for Summer Reading! Come by the library on Thursday, August 6th

10 am Fox and Branch musical duo!

“A Fox and Branch family show is all about audience participation. In fact, we try to make the entire idea of there being “an audience” disappear: we are just a big group of people having fun. The kids get to sing, clap, dance and play rhythm instruments. Adults get to enjoy the music, clap and sing along.”




We will also have bouncy houses sponsored by the Friends of the Library! Face painting and ice cream! Don’t miss out!!

We’ll see you there!
