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 Prose 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)  Drop-Spindle Spinning (Fiber Arts):  meets on the first Friday of the month (effective January 2019) in the Board Room.  Before joining, please call the Help Desk at 986-1047, ext. 3, or email Sue Gardner at sgardner@rcls.org, so that we may arrange for equipment and materials.  There is a small materials fee to cover the cost of wool used. 

g)   Book Discussion Groups:

  •     Science Book Group:  meets the 3rd Monday of the month
  •     Non-Fiction Book Group:  meets the 1st Tuesday of the month

Some activities, like the stitching groups, can accomodate any number of people.  Others require a specific number of participants, such as mahjongg.  If you are interested in joining a group, please inquire first at the Help Desk (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; for this, please call Kathleen Georgalas at the Library at (845) 986-1047, ext. 5 to discuss.

Thank you!
