What’s happening at Carnegie Library?

There is something for everyone at Carnegie Library! On Thursday, Nov. 5, at 4 p.m. the library is offering “Color Therapy for Adults.” This popular trend is based on the belief that coloring is a great way for grown-ups to decompress. Call today and register, leave the rest to us!

On Nov. 20 at 4 p.m., the Carnegie Book Club will host a Harper Lee Discussion. We will talk about Lee’s recent release, her classic work, To Kill a Mockingbird, as well as her life and times. Previous attendees are welcome once again as we further explore the themes in Lee’s work, and talk about both the acclaim and criticism surrounding the publication of Go Set a Watchman. In 2016, the Library Book Club will focus on great works of modern literature. The group will meet six times throughout the year and is intended for both lifelong fans and first-time readers! Join us!
