Do you like to read? Then come and sit and read with us at Silent Book Club.
Unlike a traditional book club with assigned books, then the scramble to read them and the pressure to have something smart to say, the Silent Book Club is all about adults enjoying books, friends, and a beverage of your choice–without any homework. There will be a 1/2 hour to chat (or not), then a quiet hour to read, followed by a 1/2 hour to chat (or not). BYOB – “bring your own BOOK”.
Simple. Sweet. Reading.
Silent Book Club takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 6-8pm. In January, we’ll meet at First Glass Wine Bar at the bowling alley.
At times, the library has to close due to weather and unsafe travel conditions. We would much rather know people are safe at home instead of trying to get to the library to return their books or movies that are due that day.
Closure of Newark Central School District schools does not automatically mean that the library will also be closed.
When the library closes for any emergency reason, including weather, the closing will be listed on FOX Rochester, 13 WHAM ABC, as well as on the library’s Facebook and website pages, when possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to access the phone system from home and therefore cannot have a “closed for weather” message as a greeting when you call the library. Instead, the phone will ring and ring without being answered.
Did you know that the library offers individual computer instruction? At your convenience and by appointment, you can sit down with our instructor and get help with your online job application, setting up and using an email account, signing up for Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, or anything else you might need help with. Call the library to sign up.
Join us on the first Monday of each month at 1:00pm as we explore a new category of food and try new recipes.
Borrow a cookbook (optional) and try a new recipe at home. Then bring the food you made and the recipe to the library to share and talk about your experience cooking the recipe. If possible, please bring your recipe in ahead of time so we can make copies for everyone. We will make and share a different kind of food each month. Check the library’s online calendar for more information and to sign up.
