Adult Fiction Book Discussion
Last Tuesday of Every Month at 1:00 p.m.If you’ve been interested in attending a book discussion but have been hesitant to try, give us a shot. It’s all the fun of reading and talking about a book without any of the homework. If you prefer to just listen you can come and do that too. We encourage different perspectives and strive for a variety of genres including classics, science fiction, historical fiction, graphic novels, psychological fiction, an occasional non-fiction and the list goes on. Attendees are also welcome to provide input for future book discussion titles.

Last Wednesday of Every Month at 6:30 p.m.
The last Wednesday of every month is Trivia Night at KFL. If you are confident in your trivia abilities, Trivia Night can be an individual sport. But you can also play in teams of up to six people. If you come with a ready-made team - great! If not, the Trivia Night regulars are a warm and welcoming lot, happy to give newcomers a spot on a team. We've been told that lasting friendships have been made when newcomers joined existing teams.
Admission is free, but players who choose to pay a $2 entry fee are eligible to collect a share of half of that night's pot if their team wins. (Of course, if you're playing alone, you keep the whole half.) The other half goes to purchasing items for the library's collection.
Fourth Wednesday of Every Month
On the fourth Wednesday of every month at 5:30, come to KFL for the fun of making music in the library. Though most of us are newbies, still learning to play the ukulele, people of all skill levels are invited to stop by to play along. Instructor Dan Riggall combines basic instruction with the opportunity to make music.
The library has a limited number of ukuleles available. Please let us know if you will need to borrow one. We will do our best to accommodate you.
Tuesdays at 11:00
Do you love to knit? Crochet? Sew? Have you always wanted to learn? Do you have an unfinished project hidden on the closet shelf? Then join us for "In Stitches", our handicrafts group! This is a great opportunity to expand your skills and learn from others, about knitting, crocheting, sewing, embroidering, or other handicrafts while enjoying the company of others. Bring a project you are working on, or come learn from the very beginning (please bring your own supplies). Knitting help will be available.
In Stitches meets every Tuesday morning at 11:00 a.m. in the Walker Room. No registration is needed, just drop by for as long as you like.
