Adults

Who says the library is just for kids? We encourage adults to check out the latest reads in our fiction and non-fiction sections as well as our huge selection of large print books, paperbacks, and audiobooks. Want to take a break from reading? We also have a large selection of DVDs that you can checkout. And did you know we even have a Local History section? We have programs for adults too! We welcome you to participate in our book clubs, crocheting and crafting classes, movie club, and book bingo. We always have something exciting going on, which include author visits, wellness fairs, and awesome fundraising events. Always be sure to pick up our monthly calendar of events and follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information. If you haven’t been to our library before or if it’s been a long time, make it a point to stop by and visit. We have convenient hours which include evenings and Saturdays. There is something for everyone at PML!

ADULT BOOK CLUB:

We get together to chat about the book we’ve chosen for each month, picked by the members. Then we explore ideas, genres, authors, or specific books for the coming months. Everyone is able to pick up a copy of the next month’s book at the meeting. A book raffle is held for all those members present. Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month in the Cosgrove Center and new members are always welcome.

ADULT CRAFTING CLASS:

Adults are invited to come spend a relaxing afternoon creating a craft for their home or for the holidays. Classes are held on the third Tuesday of the month in the Cosgrove Center. Supplies are provided, so sign-ups are required at least 24 hours in advance. There is no cost for this class, just bring your desire to create!

BEGINNER’S CROCHET CLASS:

This class is designed to teach the very basics in crocheting, from holding a hook to reading a pattern. There is no cost for this class, but the class size is limited. Classes are generally held on the second Thursday of the month with the possibility of it being twice per month. With enough interest, there is the option of a second class being held once or twice per month on Mondays. Call the library to reserve your spot for an upcoming class.

BOOK BINGO:

“B4” you look any further, mark your calendar for the afternoon of the fourth Tuesday of the month. We play at least five games of bingo and every winner selects a book prize. Come discover a new author or genre, all for free! Join us in the Cosgrove Center.

“BOOKS ‘N’ BITES”:

This different type of adult book club brings together everyone who likes to talk about books. We get to share our favorite books, authors, and genres. We talk about what we’re currently reading or just finished. Bring along a snack to share and join us in the Cosgrove Center. Check our monthly calendar for dates and times.

FRIDAY FLUMMOX:

Flummox – to perplex greatly. Play some “mind games” with us each Friday. Test your skills on crosswords, puzzles, word searches, sudokus, or other perplexing fun! You’ll find flummox feats in the Passive Puzzle Place in the main room of the library.

“OFF THE HOOK”:

This is PML’s adult needlework club. It is for the more experienced artisan and is not an instructional class. Come show off what you’re making, help others with tips and tricks, and spend a relaxing couple of hours working on your project (and having adult conversation). So grab your hooks, yarn, needles, fabric…and your coffee…and join us in the Reading Nook on the fourth Thursday of the month.

SILVER SCREEN MOVIE CLUB:

Adults looking for something relaxing to do can join us for a movie each Wednesday afternoon. We show classic black & white movies as well as some old favorites. There is no cost for the show and a limited supply of popcorn and water will be available. Movies are shown in the Reading Nook on the big TV.

TRIPLE THREAD FIBER ARTS CLUB:

All types of string art are explored in this club, a new type each quarter. Participants learn a skill and are able to complete a simple project. The club meets on the third Thursday of the month. There is no cost, but sign-ups are required at least 24 hours in advance since supplies are provided.
