The theme for the Adult Reading Club is "Exercise Your Mind," placing an emphasis on the importance of being physically active as adults. Libraries may be known for lending books, hosting storytimes, offering resources for research, and other traditional services, but we're expanding our reach in special activities this summer.
Throughout the reading club period we'll be hosting a series of fun fitness courses that will get you up, moving, and having fun at your library. All fitness courses will be led by local instructors and professionals, and all are FREE for you to participate in.
Take a look at our summer fitness schedule for this year. If you need additional information,feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to assist you. Help us to make this summer fit & fun for everyone.

Join us in this after hours library event where you can bring your “Nerf” gun and ammo for a lively and good-natured battle royale throughout the library. We do ask that you bring a “Nerf” weapon with standard darts, not the high-powered guns with round pellets or modified weapons as we’re not trying to hurt anyone.
