Happy New Year!

We have a special treat planned for this month: a visit from author Michael Zadoorian. He will be visiting January 24th, 2019 at 6pm to talk about his books.

Two of our adult book clubs will be discussing Michael Zadoorian's books, Beautiful Music, and The Leisure Seeker. We will also have a screening of the movie adaptation of The Leisure Seeker.

We're very excited to host Michael Zadoorian at the library, and we would like your help getting the news out. Please share this newsletter with anyone you think would be interested. We also have an event on Facebook that you can share with friends.

This newsletter covers adult events, but be sure to check out our events calendars online or at your favorite library location for details about programs for children and teens.

As always, if you have any suggestions for future events, I'm happy to hear them.

See you at the library!
