One of the challenges of the Adult Services Librarian is finding or creating great programming for the grown-ups; finding things that are interesting and fun and an escape from the usual fare. Book clubs are good, but we strive to do more and give more. This month I have 4 events for adults and/or families, and I hope you find something enjoyable. Below is a list of the programming for adults and their families in April. Remember, all events are free to the public.
