Set in present day West Virginia, Ann Pancake’s debut novel, Strange As This Weather Has Been, tells the story of a coal mining family—a couple and their four children—living through the latest mining boom and dealing with the mountaintop removal and strip mining that is ruining what is left of their mountain life. As the mine turns the mountains to slag and wastewater, workers struggle with layoffs and children find adventure in the blasted moonscape craters.
Nothing feels like summer more than upbeat, fun songs from Jimmy Buffett, The Beach Boys, Harry Belafonte, Van Morrison, and others done with the lively 'Hooley Shooters' twist! Come dance on the lawn or just kick back and feel the summer breeze as Tommy and the gang put some summer zing into your life!

Join us for the premiere performance of an original drama, Love Is In The Air: Senior Moments. It will be performed by the members of the Library's Senior Improv Theater Group. The play was inspired, created and developed by the participants this spring in a series of workshops at the Library led by director Linda Richmond.
Love Is In The Air tells the story of a sleepy little upstate NY village that has been chosen as the setting for a romantic comedy and the cast of village characters must get ready for their really big show.
