WRITE ON with the 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. This group meets on the 2nd Monday of every month at the Carbondale Branch Library at 6:00 pm.
Feel free to bring a snack or dinner.
Join us at the Carbondale Branch Library for twice a month Ukulele nights. Bring your ukulele and 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, 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. Non-Ukers are welcome to sit in.
