This class is offered on the first Monday of each month from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. The program will be different each month. You will do some sort of volunteering at each program, so you will be able to list “volunteering at your local library”, as a community service on your work and college applications.
Some things we will do: collect food for the Hope Center, make crafts for someone or for use at the library, and this fall we will make wreaths and center pieces. Come have fun with your friends and earn community volunteer hours!

No program will be held in January, April or September 2019

Adult Programs

“Page Turners Book Discussion”

Next discussion will be Monday August 12th and we will be discussing Kristin Hannah’s book “The Nightingale”.

“Viann and Isabelle have always been close despite their differences. Younger, bolder sister Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann lives a quiet and content life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. When World War II strikes and Antoine is sent off to fight, Viann and Isabelle’s father sends Isabelle to help her older sister cope. As the war progresses, it’s not only the sisters’ relationship that is tested, but also their strength and their individual senses of right and wrong. With life as they know it changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Viann and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions”–Provided by publisher.

Pick up a copy of the book today and join us on August 12th!

We meet the 2nd Monday of the month from 7:00–? PM. We discuss a book each month and receive a new book for the following month’s discussion + have a small snack.
