Join us on the first Saturday of every month for our Silent Reading Party. You can also enjoy a silent game of chess, checkers and even a game of Tic-Tac-Toe.  For everyone, all ages, all day. Program will not be held on State holidays.

According to a recent BookRiot article:  “If you are a reader, you know the special pleasure of going out to read in public. But for most of us, reading in public has meant reading in public alone. But recently, a few recurring Silent Reading Parties have sprung up, giving readers a chance to read alone in public, but together.”
