Interest Groups

Coloring for Adults

We meet at 4:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Monday in Room C.

Join us for a relaxing evening of coloring! Coloring is an activity we think of as being for kids. However, it can be beneficial for adults. Feel free to bring your own coloring supplies, or you can use ours.

We meet at 4:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Thursday in Room C & on Zoom.

Won't these be interesting times to write about someday? For now, our Memoir Writers group continues to think about events, places, and people in our lives. Everyone has a story to tell. Share a memory from your life! Send something you have written to Erin at ededin [at] Your writing will be shared with the group via email. Then read what others have written and reply or join the group in person at the Library to share your feedback. We have members with all skill levels. New members and visitors are always welcome!

We meet various Mondays at 1:00 pm in the Community Room at the Library.

We're pleased to offer a free showing of a movie that is of interest to grown-ups on varying Mondays of the month. Check out our Monday Matinee page for more information.

Qigong is a moving meditation that is simple, easy to learn, and can be done by everyone, at any age and fitness level. Just mirror the movements of the instructor and reduce tension, improve breathing, and increase flexibility. Open to ages 16 & up. Participants need to sign a waiver at the start of their first class.
