Do you believe in love at the first chapter?

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.” — James Baldwin

WE have one more day to find out what weather news General Beauregard will bring us--six more weeks of winter if he sees his shadow, or, hopefully...not! Either which way, here's an antidote to winter blues: Grab your iPhone and take a picture of your pooch--or, go outside and take a snap of your horse and enter it in our upcoming Dog and Pony Show (info below).

Not art-inspired? Join one of our book groups--nothing like a deadline and the prospect of great conversation to get reading! And, don't forget Valentine's Day--come on by and pick out a book for your favorite homosapien. Or, consider poetry--there's something totally romantic about reading poetry aloud to each other...

Our 2023 book groups are thriving with titles that are sure to prompt great discussions and laughter. And, our discussion group on current topics "Living Room Conversations" returns this month as well!

Happy Valentine's Day, enjoy the season, and don't forget to let us know what you're reading!
