About our Events Calendar

Now it's easy to:

  • register for events online
  • set up email reminders
  • email a friend about an event
  • view your list of events 

With our new events calendar, you can view all of our upcoming events in an easy-to-read monthly calendar format. Using the "search slider" button at the top of the page, you can search for specific events by keyword or audience.

Events in blue text are children's events, and events in black text are for adults and/or teens. All events are clickable links to see the event details and descriptions.

For example, I clicked on a storytime event:
