LET'S BOOK! RETURNS - MAY 14

Our popular reading and walking program returns on May 14 for a new 10-week session. We had originally hoped to start the program on May 7, but had to change the date to May 14. So Mark (or change) your calendars!

Let's Book! encourages people to read and to walk every day for optimal health of the mind and body. You can join our weekly walks or just walk on your own. Group walks will be held every Thursday morning beginning at 9:30 a.m. and will be approximately one hour in length. Participants can walk at their own pace and are not required to complete the entire one-hour walk.

Everyone is encouraged to keep a log of the number of minutes they spend reading and walking each day. Log sheets will be available at the library. The goal is to read and walk at least 100 minutes per week throughout the 10-week program.

For more information visit the LET'S BOOK page!

TITLES AND TEA BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP - June 10 at 1:00 pm

It's Book Club "Indoor" Picnic Month! Relax and enjoy an informal networking session with your Titles & Tea friends. Bring a covered dish casserole, salad or dessert to share with the group. Guests are welcome!


MYSTERY BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP - June 26 from 11:50 am to 12:50 pm

The book selection is Always Time To Die by Elizabeth Lowell. The recent death of the powerful Quintrell family's patriarch has placed his son, Governor Josh Quintrell, squarely in the spotlight as he prepares his run for the highest political office in the land. Carly May can hardly believe her good luck when she is invited by the governor's eccentric aunt into the Quintrell’s private Taos compound to compile a genealogical record of the illustrious residents. But digging into the past is raising some troubling questions and it soon becomes frighteningly apparent that the motivation of the dotty old woman who hired Carly might be something akin to revenge.... and that someone is determined to remove the inquisitive genealogist from the picture by any means necessary.
