We support our mission of fulfilling the cultural, social, and recreational needs of the community by developing and presenting programs that provide additional opportunities for information, learning, and entertainment. Programming is an integral component of library services that expands the library’s role as a community resource, introducing the public to library resources.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic programming is virtual hosted on Zoom.

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 – A Place for Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza
Talk Art-y to Me!
Each month, Jane Oneail from Culturally Curious leads art talks on various topics, sometimes focusing on the one particular artist, other times on various artists’ works on a common theme. See the topics scheduled below:
Friday, November 20, 2020 – Fierce Females in Art
Women have long been the subject of art, often depicted as nothing more than objects of desire. How do images of women change when women become the creators? This program examines the history of women in art in brief and then explores the lives, careers and works of several major women artists from the Renaissance to the twentieth century, including Artemisia Gentileschi and Mary Cassatt.
Thursday, December 10, 2020 – Edward Hopper: Sunlight and Solitude
Whether it is a bustling city or a Cape Cod beach, Edward Hopper’s iconic paintings capture a feeling of stillness and quiet tension. Learn more about Hopper’s career, early influences and how his work relates to the work of other artists from the same generation.
