Put It in Writing

When was the last time you wrote a real, paper-and-pen letter? 

E-mail and social media are part of our everyday lives now, but that does not mean we have to let letters fall by the wayside. It’s still lovely to receive a letter in the mail, and it’s equally lovely to sit down and write one.

Whether you’re a regular pen-pal or can’t remember the last letter you wrote, join us for a fun filled letter-writing session. Reach out to family and friends or pen a special note to a service member. This casual, fun filled event will have you feeling nostalgic for good old fashioned snail mail! We’ll have lots of paper, cards, envelopes and even snacks. 


Upcoming sessions

Tuesday, October 23 - 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM Community Room

Screen-Free Spree

Join us in the Children's Library as we turn off the tech and tune in to the world around us. Our iPads and AWE computers will be tucked away, but entertainment is guaranteed! Connect with new friends as you try an analog craft, activity, or game. Enjoy pop-up storytimes throughout the day, interactive play opportunities, and more. Take a break from your screen...it'll be there tomorrow!

Activities will be available all day and all ages are welcome. No registration required.
