  • Book Discussion – 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 3
    Join us as we launch a new book discussion group. For this gathering, there is no pre-selected title. We encourage you to come prepared to discuss your personal pick, whether it’s a recent read or a longtime favorite. As the group grows, we will transition to monthly group reads selected several months in advance, chosen with input from the group.

    Join us for a short story and Lego building activities. Legos provided for use during this program.
