Meet the Author - Thomas Farmen
Bessie's Story - Watching the Lights Go Out is Farmen’s inspiring story about a charming, brave, chocolate Lab who gradually loses her eyesight. The author will speak about the unexpected diagnosis of terminal blindness for his beloved four-year-old pet through the two-and-a-half year transition to sightlessness. In the process, Bessie unwittingly becomes an expert mentor and teacher for the high-wire act of growing older with grace and optimism. Join us Friday, February 28 at 5:30 to meet Thomas Farmen and Bessie the dog. This is an after-hours event and library services will not be available.

Every Tuesday beginning February 18 from 5-7, stop in the library for a one-on-one game of Cribbage, Boggle, or even Connect Four! Bring a game partner or pair up with another gaming singleton. (You could probably even ask a staff member if they’re up for the challenge. Hint: they probably are.)
Meet other local writers at our weekly Writers Group. Join us every Tuesday morning at 10am. Everyone is welcome!
