Library Programs

This is the place to find out about all the upcoming programs for adults at the Chatham Area Public Library.  Programs do not require registration unless otherwise indicated.  To get more information about or to register for a program, please call the Library (483-2713).

Adult Programs

The Library hosts one adult program per month (excluding summer months).  Topics and time frames vary, but in the recent past we have covered home organization, gardening, extreme couponing, and genealogical research.  Most programs are free and open to the public; please call the Library for additional information or to register.  Space may be limited.

Book Clubs

The library hosts four book clubs each month.  The Outer Edge is our science fiction and fantasy book club.  Bite into a Good Book is the general reading group.  We also have a Tuesday Evening Book Club that reads fiction and non-fiction books. And The Spice of Life is our thriller book club.

Computer Classes

The Library hosts one computer class per month (excluding summer months).  Most months, the class is a workshop-style meeting for two hours on a Saturday morning. Topics vary to cover a range of interests, but we cover Microsoft Office programs (Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint), computer basics, Windows 8, and other basic computer skills (file management, scanning, printing) on a regular basis. In April, we offer an in-depth, multi-session class introducing word processing using Microsoft Word.

With the exception of our April and October classes, which do require registration, computer classes operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Space in all computer classes is limited to 15 participants.

Craft Night

The library’s social crafting evening is the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. We’ll make a craft that you’ll be able to take home with you that night. A limited number of seats are available, call the library to reserve your spot.

Writers’ Group

Whether you write poetry, short stories, novels, memoirs, or something else entirely, we invite you to join us for our monthly writers’ meeting. Each session typically centers on the discussion and critique of short pieces by two of our group members.

Please email for more information or to be added to the group’s email list. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the library’s conference room.
