Here we are beginning August, and like many others I’m wondering how time flies so fast. It feels like we just started summer. Maybe time is passing so quickly because we’ve been enjoying our summer at the Dalton Community Library.
Children have been busy with many summer activities and library clubs. It makes me so happy to see them smiling and laughing while involved in our programs. I personally want to thank the children and their families for making my first summer working at the Dalton Community Library a fun one. Our Summer Reading Program has been a big success!
Our fall programs will resume mid-September, starting with Story Time on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. This group is for our little friends under age 5. Also on Tuesdays, at 4 p.m., we will have an after-school program for elementary-aged children. Details for both of these groups are in the making, so please call the library for the latest information.
We have many adult groups being offered now and will continue throughout the fall. On Mondays at 10 a.m., we have Eastern/Chinese MahJong. Tuesdays are very busy with adult Bridge Club at 10 a.m. and “Conscious Conversation” at 4 p.m., except the first Tuesday of each month. The first Tuesday each month is dedicated to a Memoir Writing group that meets at 4 p.m.
On Thursdays at 10 a.m., we offer Western/American MahJong. We hold a knitting group on the second Thursday of each month at 1 p.m. and a Teen Bridge Club each Thursday at 4 p.m.. For Teen Bridge, we would like anyone interested to sign up by calling the library at (570) 563-2014. We also offer a crocheting group that meets on the last Friday of every month at 1 p.m.. All of these groups are open to new members. If you are interested in finding out more information about any of our groups, please stop in or call us.
Please keep in mind we offer Monday and Thursday evening hours to better serve our community. We are open Mondays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and we are closed Sundays and Wednesdays. The return box outside is always available at your convenience.
Enjoy your August!
