The goal of the Community Connections Program is to invite adults of all ages to the library to engage in a new skill, craft or hobby that will enhance previous knowledge of a topic as well as develop new interests. Programs are designed to give insight into a variety of topics ranging from calligraphy, self-defense for women, creating healthy snacks, learning about wine and more!
