Oktoberfest @ the Library!

Wednesday, October 5th, 6:30 p.m.

Learn all about the history of Oktoberfest while enjoying a guided tasting of vintage German beers. You’ll also learn about the brewing process, the story of the Paulaner brand, and how Oktoberfest is celebrated both abroad and in the U.S. today. Each patron will receive a free beer mug and t-shirt and delicious Oktoberfest refreshments will be served. Participants must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

The Big Read Book Club: Infinite Country

Saturday, October 8 at 10 a.m. (hybrid program).

Join us to discuss the acclaimed 2021 novel “Infinite Country” by Patricia Engel. Rich with Bogotá urban life, steeped in Andean myth, and tense with the daily reality for the undocumented in America, this is the story of two countries and one family — for whom every triumph is stitched with regret and every dream pursued bears the weight of a dream deferred. Patrons may attend either virtually or in person; coffee and refreshments will be served.
