The Gruffies will be meeting to discuss:
Our Winter Book Club is part of our Adult Winter Reading program. This selection does satisfy one of the items on your reading challenge list if participating. For January we'll be reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls followed by watching the recently released film. You don't have to read the book to watch the movie.
You don't have to read the book to come watch the movie, although the movie will follow the discussion from the Winter Book Club. This is the newly released feature film with Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts, and Brie Larson. The movie will be shown after library hours and with snacks provided.
Watch the official trailer for the movie:
Our February selection will be A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Kline. This selection does satisfy one of the items on your reading challenge list if participating in the Adult Winter Reading program.
Registration required. Preference given to those who have read the February Winter Book Club book selection.
You don't have to read the book to come bake with us, but the program will follow the discussion from the Winter Book Club. We'll be making a blueberry biscuit braid. What do you think of when you think about Maine? Blueberries, of course! Participants will need to bring a large mixing bowl, mixing spoon, and baking/cookie sheet with them.
Volunteers will offer tax assistance at our library from 9:00 am-3:00 pm. Appointments are scheduled for 90 minutes in length, so 1:30 pm will be the last appointment each day.
Assistance is only for those that are 60 years and older and have a maximum income of $54,000 (joint). The Council cannot offer services related to rental properties. Available spots fill up quickly, and appointments need to be prescheduled by calling the Council at 913-684-0777. They will begin to schedule appointments on January 15th.
Many local citizens gather at the library to drink coffee and enjoy snacks. There is a freewill donation taken. All are welcome, but come prepared to defend your political opinions!
A potluck lunch is held every Tuesday in the Marceline Turner room. Bring your favorite dish and join the conversation!
Our knitting group is accepting yarn donations to help make warm winter items like hats, scarves, or blankets for the homeless. You can drop off at the library any time or come knit with us!
An informal knitting gathering. Knitters of all skill levels are welcome. If you would like to learn to knit, our staff will be happy to teach you the basics.
This group creates quilts in honor of veterans who have served their country. These quilts are then given to selected veterans to cherish. All levels of quilting ability are welcome. Check out further information on the Quilts of Valor page.
A staff member from the Council will be on hand each month to answer questions regarding services or for appropriate referrals. No appointment is necessary. In the event of inclement weather the event will be cancelled for that time.
