Saturday, April 10th (raindate April 17th)

Horizon Wings on the lawn

The Secret Lives of Owls – 11am

It seems that owls have always been surrounded by an air of mystery, probably because most are nocturnal and not easily spotted in the wild. This is your chance to be only a few feet away from a Northern Saw-Whet Owl, an Eastern Screech Owl, a Barred Owl, a Barn Owl and a Great-Horned Owl! Discover the extraordinary features of owls, including exceptional eyesight, hearing, and ability to fly silently. Join Horizon Wings for this outdoor event on the library lawn. All ages welcome!

Friday, April 9th at 3pm

What are you reading? Let’s chat (with social distance) about what you’re reading during the pandemic. Join us with a mug of tea or a favorite beverage.  This event is held on Zoom. If you would like to join, please send an email to
