Craft Series
CRAFT SERIES
On most Monday evenings, you will find a group of happy crafters trying their hand at needlework, making paper cards or enjoying a cup of coffee while discussing their latest crochet project. These ladies learned to tat during one of our sessions in May. These craft meetings continue the first and third Monday nights of each month all through the fall. Watch for new topics next spring!.
Dig Into Reading
Dig Into Reading
Our new space was great for "Dig Into Reading" this past June, when Janine Surmick from Riverquest in Pittsburgh presented a cool underground session all about Marcellus shale gas drilling and water quality to the kids.

The new system requires each person to update their information to get a new library card. Those under 18 need a parent to accompany them to update their information.
