Summer Adult Programs

This summer, join the Ross Library for some deep thoughts. This year’s summer reading theme is oceanography, and the library has some amazing ocean-related programs to attend.

The Ross Library has a new monthly craft program! At 12:30 on the last Saturday of every month, the library will hold “Saturday Crafternoons” which will feature a different craft each month! On June 25, the craft will be toy sea urchins.

Beginning in June, the library is once again offering free take-home basic origami kits to anyone who is interested! Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper into specific shapes. Each kit contains simple instructions to make three different aquatic animals, plus ten pieces of origami paper to work with. Kits can be picked up in the library.

The Ross Library is holding a trivia night! At six PM on July 12, participants can compete in an ocean-based trivia contest. All questions will involve oceanography! Patrons can compete individually or as a team.

On Tuesday, June 7 at 6: 30, join Lou Bernard for a lesson on ocean survival. Participants will learn how to stay alive in the water, and how to find food and shelter until help arrives.

Are you interested in investigating the Loch Ness Monster or similar creatures? Then this summer, the Ross Library is the place for you. Paranormal Investigator Lou Bernard is holding “Cryptozoology 101: Water Monsters,” a class on how to scientifically investigate cryptids. The event will be held at 6 PM on Thursday, July 21st.

Join the Ross Library for a deep discussion. On July 26th at 6 PM, Dr. Mohamed Khalequzzaman of Lock Haven University will be giving a talk on the oceans and a wide range of environmental problems facing them.

Adult coloring is returning to the Ross Library! Beginning in June, on the first Monday of each month at 7 PM, an adult coloring session will be held in the Sloan Room. Participants are welcome to bring their own materials, or use the library’s.

Formerly on hiatus, the Book Brigade will return for the summer of 2022. The Book Brigade is the Ross Library’s monthly book club, formed in 2015. The club meets on the last Saturday of every month to discuss a book and its social aspects. The Book Brigade will discuss books that relate to oceanography as part of the PALA Annual Summer Reading Program. The first meeting will be at ten AM on June 25, and the book will be Michael Crichton’s “Sphere.”
