Memoir Writing Circle
Meets the 4th Tuesday of each month from 2:30 – 4:30 pm, in the cafe.
This group meets once a month. Members read aloud pieces prepared beforehand. A monthly prompt is provided for inspiration, but there is no requirement to use it. Members can write about anything they like. Pieces may include memoir-style writing, essays, or even, occasionally, fiction. This is not a “workshop” style group. We meet simply to enjoy one another’s stories, although there is usually a brief comments/questions discussion following each reading. The group is suitable for writers of all levels and experience.
This is an open and supportive group. Please contact Eileen Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to become part of the group.
Meets every Fourth Friday 10:30 am-12:00 pm
Join us once a month for Senior Social Hour! Get to know your neighbor in a casual setting with light refreshments, music, games, puzzles, chit-chat, and a monthly presentation or activity. Make new friends and find connections with your fellow senior patrons at the library.

In addition, PA MEDI has put a number of informative Medicare presentations (and more) on their web site at www.rsvpmc.org/medicare-help.
