Adult Clubs & Other Cool Things

Did you know that the Willmar Public Library has three clubs geared toward adults?

There is the Third Tuesday of the Month Book Club, which conveniently meets every Third Tuesday of the Month at 5:30PM at the Willmar Community Center. Our next meeting will be August 21st. At this meeting, we be discussing The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. The book is interesting as it is written entirely from a dog’s perspective. We will, also, be discussing which books will be on the Fall Reading List, so come with suggestions.

Another club we have is the Adult Chess Club. The club meets every first and third Thursday of the month from 6-8PM. The next meeting will be tomorrow, July 19th. This club is great for beginners, amateurs, and even experts. Plus, it’s a chance to meet a lot of new people.

Our third adult club is also our newest. It is the Adult Anime Club. What is anime? It is a type of Japanese Animation. This club meets every first and second Friday of the Month from 3-5PM. The next meeting is August 3rd. We also talk manga – a form of Japanese Artwork. Plus, we have great food if you have the munchies.

So what other cool things do we have going at the library for adults this summer?

There is the Lunch and Learn Series. Lunch and Learn takes place every other Monday at 1PM with the next one being July 23rd. Each program features a different presenter on a different topic meanwhile you can bring a lunch (hot or cold) to eat. The next presentation will be on Tenant/Renter Rights in Minnesota.  This is great for the college student about to make that big step in renting the first apartment; the Senior that is downsizing; or just anyone living in an apartment.
