The Stubbs Memorial Library offers a regular Summer Reading program for children, teens, and adults. Library staff supervises each activity program that is a part of this larger program. A regular story-time is offered on Wednesday mornings at 11:00am and a recorded story-time is also available to be sent direct to email. Both operate September to May. Adult coloring is offered in the summer as a monthly adult program, on the first Tuesday. The October Mystery Game: “The Game is Afoot” is for adult participants due to content. Other program offerings for children, teens and adults will vary. 

Some library programming may be located off-site, so please pay attention to location on flyers and other advertising.
