WRITE ON with the NEW Carbondale Branch Library Writers' Group! The goal of this monthly group is to provide a supportive environment for writers of all genres: from the novice to the experienced. Attendees will have the opportunity to share and explore their own writing, their peers’ writing, and writing in general. Open to all writers and future writers, teen and adult.
The Carbondale Branch Library will host Lotería Nights every last Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm for all family members! The main event for the evening is to play a few rounds of Lotería (aka: Mexican Bingo). This iconic Mexican game is very similar to bingo, but instead of numbers, playing cards consist of 16 (out of 54 possible) pictograms. Lotería is a fun game and a great way to learn a little Spanish!
We will provide the aguas frescas (beverages) and you could bring a small dish to share if you wish :)
Come join the Bilingual Book Club at the Carbondale Branch Library every Wednesday from 6:30 - 7:30 pm beginning August 7.

Join us at the Carbondale Branch Library at 6:00 pm on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month for Ukulele nights. Bring your ukulele, a song to share if you have one, and Get Your Uke On! For beginners through experts, age 9-99. We’ll start off each session with a sing along (the library staff is hard at work on a theme song) followed by a short lesson and a Uke Jam. What better way to have fun and build community than to play and sing together! And is there a more fun and easily accessible instrument than the ukulele? Well, maybe the kazoo and you are welcome to bring one along.
