Formerly "First Thursdays" is now "First Tuesdays Together" when seniors come together and create wonderful crafts and meet new people. Recycled greeting cards and Valentines cards will be our first craft on February 1, followed by a different paper craft every month. We'll provide the glitter and you will have fun.
Explore the challenge and camaraderie of board and card games, whether one on one or as part of a team. On January 27 we'll get to know one another over a rousing game of pinochle.
There are some authors we know and some we don't, there are books you read that you remember for years to come. These books may be by unknown authors but they deserve their moment in the sun to shine. In the An Author-to-Watch Book Club we will read and discuss little known African American authors who are on the verge of greatness. This book club will meet once a month on the third Saturday at the Carver School Road Branch from 3-4 p.m.
