Adult Programs

The Meanderings Writer's Group

This group meets at the Library to write together. They share and critique their stories and sometimes submit for publication. They focus on the history of Saugatuck and Douglas, with emphasis on autobiographical essays, but other forms of writing are also encouraged. All are welcome.

Tech Time with Nick

Bring your laptop, mobile device, or eReader and Nick will help answer your questions.

Book Discussion Group

The September selection for our afternoon group is Here Comes Trouble by Michael Moore. Everyone welcome!

Library Board Meeting

The public is welcome to attend Library Board meetings. There is time set aside at the beginning of each meeting for public comment. This month's meeting will be held on the second Tuesday, rather than the usual third Wednesday.

A Night Out With Books

The September selection for our evening book discussion group is, Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel.
