New LGBTQ youth group
A new support group to help LGBTQ youth and young adults from age 16 to in their 20s deal with social stigma, bullying, violence, hate crimes and discrimination begins at your library on Monday, August 5 from 4-5:30 p.m. under the leadership of Ana M.

The group will convene the first Monday of every month except for a change to September 9 because of Labor Day.

On Thursday, August 22 at 6 p.m. there will be a short annual meeting with an ice cream social, followed at 6:30 p.m. by the book sale for Friends only – and you can join at the door if you are not already a member. Dues are $100 for a lifetime membership, $15 for an annual individual and $25 for an annual family. The next two days are open to everyone – Friday from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
This is your chance to buy books, DVDs, CDs and more at very special prices while also helping your library, since the Friends donate all the proceeds for various programs and projects that improve our facilities and services to you.
