The Mission of the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall is to serve as an outstanding library, theater and historic site that welcomes, informs, entertains and engages its community and the region in lifelong learning.

We have expanded our Monday evening Library hours until 8:00 PM and we hope you can join us! We are highlighting new programs offering something for everyone.

First Mondays = “Show Me How
Show Me How is a new series of informational and instructional programs that will cover all different topics, from cooking to job advice, social media and how to make the best out of your wardrobe. We will have a description for each topic to be presented each month.
This program will occur the first Monday of the month at 7:00 pm. Registration is not required for this program. Some programs are open to teens 9th grade and up.

Second Mondays =  Family Story Time
Family Story Time is an evening story time for all ages with Miss JoLynne.  Wear your favorite pajamas if you want!  We will share some stories, learn some rhymes and sing some songs to help get your little ones ready for bed.

Third Mondays = Prime Time Books
Prime Time Books is an evening Book Discussion Group.  Let’s start the new year off with good conversations about books.  We will read a variety of books throughout the year, from fiction, mysteries, teens, to non-fiction and even revisit a classic or two to see if they stil hold up today.  Our first selection will be The Crazyladies of Pearl Street by Trevanian.  Copies will be availble for check out at the desk.  Open to adults and teens.  We wil meet the third monday of each month.

Fourth Mondays are Quarterly = Library 101
Library 101 will be held quarterly and we will teach you things about the library you never knew showing you how to get the most from your Library.  Each session will focus on an electronic resource and how to use it whether at home on a traditional computer or how to use the latest library app.  We will start off with Libby and Overdrive, What’s the difference and what else can I do with it? Open to adults and teens
