Montgomery Locals 11/13/2019

By Staff | Nov 13, 2019

Have you been to any of the new adult programs that are happening at the Montgomery Area Public Library? The Adult Book Club has been running since September and every month the members pick a genre, and each person picks the book that they would like to read. If you are interested in joining, you are more than welcome to come and enjoy some great conversation with other adults who appreciate the simple joys of reading a good book. The Adult Book Club meets one Saturday afternoon a month.

This year has also seen the addition of some adult painting programs that have been added, and this series is a perfect starting place for those who have little to no artistic experience. The paint programs are lots of fun so be sure to come and try your hand at it. You can stop by the library to pick up a copy of the monthly calendar of events or find it on the library’s Facebook page. There are plenty of activities for all ages!
