Adult Programs

The Library is more than just books! We serve as a place for folks to gather, learn, share, and discuss what interests them. We welcome your suggestions for programs you’d like us to consider presenting, and if you would like to share a hobby or area of your expertise, please let us know!

Ongoing Programs:


Renegade Readers Book Club

  • For adults and older teens
  • Meets the 2nd Monday of each month at 5:30 PM
  • New members always welcome!

Are you a free thinker? Don’t like restrictions in your reading choices? Excited to get lots of varied book recommendations? Then this is the group for you! At the conclusion of each meeting, the next month’s “assignment” is randomly chosen from members’ prepared suggestions. It might be to select any book on a certain subject, or for group members to read different books by the same author, or something more unusual; for instance, “read a book with a red cover.” Or, just as welcome, members can tell the group about ANY book they’re reading.

Summer Concerts in the Park

  • For many years, the Library has sponsored free outdoor concerts, usually on Monday evenings, of all sorts of live music right outside the library in Veterans’ Park. Bring yourself, your family, a blanket or lawn chairs, a picnic perhaps, and enjoy the sounds and the picture-perfect setting by the water. Funding is provided by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, distributed by the Genesee- Orleans Regional Arts Council, GoArt!

Lyndonville Reads

Get to know local authors of both fiction and nonfiction through one of our newer programs, “Lyndonville Reads.” A project inspired by the popular “Tale For Three Counties” one book/one community program of years past, all readers in our area are invited to read the selected book in the weeks prior to the author’s visit to the library. Our goal is to include school groups as well.

Be a part of the special connection that happens when you’ve experienced the book, followed by the opportunity to visit with the author.

Computer and Gadget Classes

The library has offered nearly every type of computer training class and gadget how-to help session, presented by Sara Taylor, our Nioga Library System’s tech instructor since 2011.
See a list of class offerings here, ( and let us know your choices for our next session.

Occasional Programs

We are always eager to present programs that help you discover something new, or help you learn more! Past programs have included local history, nature (birds of prey), gardening, arts & crafts (wool felting, quilling, mandalas as meditation).

Keep us informed on what YOU’RE interested in!

Local Human Services Information and Referral

As a member of the Human Services Council of Orleans County, the Library constantly receives updated information from the many health and social services agencies in our area. We touch base personally with staff from these agencies several times per year. We will gladly help you get in touch with the right person to assist you.
