The James V. Brown Library is taking book discussions out of the building and into a local restaurant.

Are you excited to share about a book you’ve recently read? Then join Kendra Billman, adult programming coordinator, for the upcoming “Wine and Book Pairing” programs from 7-8 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month at Barrel 135 along West Third Street.

Participants will enjoy conversation about literature that’s paired perfectly with wine. Each month the discussions will focus on a different genre. Share with the group the title and author of the book and why your book should be savored.

Upcoming programs include:
• November 13 – Chardonnay and Classics
• December 11 – Merlot and Mysteries
• January 8 – Prosecco and Science Fiction

The program is for adults age 21 and older and attendees are responsible for their own purchases. This is a walk-in program so registration is not required. More information is available at or by calling 570-326-0536.

The James V. Brown Library is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; and 24/7 at
