At each talk, a local resident discusses his or her work, area of expertise, or adventures and experiences. We are currently running two program series per year, held inside the Library on consecutive Friday evenings in the spring and fall. See below for current and past schedules.  If you know of someone who would be a good speaker for an upcoming series, please let us know by sending email to
