Joining a Library Activity Group

The Library is delighted to welcome groups created around a particular interest or hobby.  These groups are ongoing, non-instructional, free and open to the public without registration.  Following are the groups which meet regularly at the Library; new members are welcome to join at any time.

a)  Mah-Jongg:  two groups - one on Tuesday mornings, the other on Tuesday evenings - both on the lower level.
b)  Stitchers & Knitters:  two groups - one on Thursday mornings, the other on Thursday evenings - both in the Board Room.
c)  Library Writer's Group:  meets on Wednesday afternoons in the Board Room; focuses primarily on fiction and memoir.
d)  Adult/Teen Chess:  meets on Wednesday evenings in the Board Room.
e)  Canasta:  meets on Friday afternoons on the lower level.
f)   Book Discussion Groups:

  •     Science Book Group:  meets the 3rd Monday of the month
  •     Non-Fiction Book Group:  meets the 1st Tuesday of the month
  •     Sustainable World Book Group:  meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month
  •     Tuesday Evening Book Group:  meets the 1st Tuesday of the month
  •     Thursday Morning Book Group:  meets the last Thursday of the month
  •     Eclectic Book Group (reads a variety of genres):  meeting dates set @ each meeting
  •     Mystery Book Group:  meets the last Friday of the month

Some activities, like the stitching groups, can accomodate any number of people.  Others require a specific minimum or maximum number of participants, such as mahjong.  If you are interested in joining a group, please inquire first at the Help Desk (or 986-1047, ext. 3.)  We will try to connect you with a group suitable for you.  Likewise, we will be happy to assist you in organizing a completely new activity group, if it can be accommodated at the Library.

To inquire about joining an existing group, or about forming a new one, please call Kathleen Georgalas at the Library at (845) 986-1047 ext. 5, or email her at kgeorgal@rcls.org.

Thank you!
