Join our Sit 'n' Stitch Group!

Every Thursday from 10:00 a.m.-noon, a group of women set up a horseshoe of tables in our meeting room and stitch their hearts out, sharing lovely conversation while they work. For years now, we've seen happy people and  beautiful quilts, blankets, scarves, and other lovingly made items emerge from that room every week. So come join them if this appeals!

Check out a Short Story!

When Canadian short-story author Alice Munro was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature a couple of weeks ago, news accounts said that she had brought that neglected art-form back into the forefront. If you're tempted to try a short story one of these newly dark evenings, we’ve made it easy for you to find a collection to your liking. Normally inter-shelved with the rest of adult and young adult fiction, they are currently displayed on our Round Wall so you can browse. Enjoy!
