  • Culture is defined as “The sum total of the learned behavior of any given society.” This is a great definition for Mr. Kocher’s high school World Cultures class that it came from, but for the purposes of this program, it will also mean how we experience culture in our own community, tapping into the rich talents within our own town. Libraries are a hub of culture in any community.
    Join in as we explore topics such as music, painting, theater, languages, story-telling, history, crafts, poetry, pottery, film watching and making, and any other aspect of culture that we can include.

  • Fourth Thursday of the month at 10:30
    Join us as we read and discuss many of the great works of classic literature. Message us on Facebook or email iflteens@gmail.com with your name and email address to be added to the group.

  • Our True Story Book Club meets on Zoom the first Tuesday of each month at 11 AM. Our subjects are from all around the world: of places, events, and people of any time period. The only thing that matters to us in this club is if it is a true story! You can access the titles on the cloudLibrary or by using our GrabNGo service here at the library.

    Hello! I'm Val! I usually work as the Youth Services librarian, but I am also an historian with a master's in history from IUP. I take my title seriously and hope to promote enlightenment and profound discussion on the events and characters that have set our country apart from any other in the history of the world.

  • Wednesdays at 3:00
    Lauri will walk you through a weekly craft from start to finish using materials that you could find around your house. The videos will be posted to the timeline if you need to source materials and you can watch at your leisure.

  • We normally hold an in-person book club once a month where we come together to talk about a certain cookbook, now we are pivoting to a different platform. An online community where we can all come together to swap recipes and talk about the success and challenges we are having during this time of having to cook more than we probably all usually do.
