TEA TIME Book Group

The January meeting has been cancelled
Wednesday, February 10
an 11am Zoom meeting 

The book for February is Redhead by the Side of the Road by Anne Tyler. Micah Mortimer is a creature of habit. A self-employed tech expert, superintendent of his Baltimore apartment building, cautious to a fault behind the steering wheel, he seems content leading a steady, circumscribed life.


The Knitters are not meeting this winter

The Stone Ridge Library Knitters meet every Saturday morning from 10am – 12noon. All ages and experience levels can join us and drop-in knitters are also welcome. We each bring our own supplies and do our own work, but one of the best things about us is that whatever obstacle or confusion you might encounter, you’re likely to receive as much comment and advice as you need to get where you’re going with a project.

Online Services

Electronic services are posted on the Library’s website listed under Services/Online Resources. At each logo, there is an explanation of what it provides. Whether you are using a phone (See MENU) or a computer (Find the logos on the left-hand side of the screen), these sites provide a variety of resources.
