Swanton library announces adult programs

The Swanton Public Library recently offered information on programs and events planned for adults this month.

Painting class

On Dec. 18 at 10 a.m., join local artist Rick Fravor for an acrylic painting class. Participants will learn how to paint their own wintry landscape just in time for Christmas.

All supplies will be provided and the registration costs will be covered by the Friends of the Swanton Public Library. Room is limited. Call, stop in, or register through the library website.


Just in time for the holidays, join the SPL librarians and other patrons to read and swap recipes from Soup Swap by Kathy Gunst on Tuesday, Dec. 14 at 5:30 p.m. This program is free to attend, but registration is requested.

Online book club

For December, the book for the library’s online book club will be the satirical novel “Ella Minnow Pea” by Mark Dunn. Simply stop in and pick up a book and book club packet (both are yours to keep), or request a copy for curbside pickup, or even pick one up from the after-hours lockers.

Directions for joining the chat are included in the Book Club packet. Copies are limited. Join in starting Dec. 20 for good company and a good book from the comfort of your own home.

Holiday closures

The Swanton Public Library will be closed Dec. 24-25 and Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

Through Thursday Dec. 23, the library will hold the yearly Used Media Sale. Stop in during normal library hours.
