Events hosted via Zoom require you to download Zoom software to your computer or the app to your mobile device, links to all of which can be found here. Always register so we can send you instructions to join. If you need help setting up Zoom, email

Paint & Sip – Wednesday, May 26 at 7pm at the Gazebo – Join us for mocktails and create something new! Brandy will lead the class in painting a wildflower scene, live and in (socially distanced) person at the Demarest Gazebo.

Community Read – Wednesday, June 9 at 7pm at the Demarest Train Station – Join your friendly neighborhood librarians Kate and Orla for a relaxed discussion of Kiley Reid’s best-selling novel, Such a Fun Age. Whether you read it a year ago or are picking it up for the first time – or are just interested in a community chat! – all are welcome. Learn more here.

We plan to offer this program as a hybrid event, with a socially-distanced in-person meeting at the Demarest Train Station and a simultaneous discussion on Zoom.
