In Motion

Our previous event series have been so well received by our community that we are continuing this tradition.  Many popular events will return and some new ones will be introduced.  The year has already been set “in motion” with our fourth annual photo contest.  Then, great programs, a read-a-thon, and A Magical Night at the Library will keep you moving.
Your support will certainly make an impact and ensure the success of this event.


Start off the series by entering our fourth annual photo contest with a photograph of a body or object in motion. Submissions will be accepted through March 15, 2020. Winners will be announced and honored at a reception at the Library on Saturday, April 18, 2020For full information and for entry, visit


Plenty of “in motion” programs are in the works for every age and taste. Stay tuned!


What’s a read-a-thon? A read-a-thon is an event where a book is read in its entirety by many volunteer readers. This year we will read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

The read-a-thon will take place on Saturday, June 20, 2020. A call for readers will go out closer to that date.


Expect the unexpected at A Magical Night at the Library!  This big night caps off the year-long series of “in motion” events.  It will be a ticketed event with food, wine, live music,  and more.  Save the date of Saturday, November 7, 2020, 7-10 p.m. for an enchanted evening at the Library.
