Ongoing Events

These events occur regularly - weekly, monthly, or annually. 

ALL AGES: Summer Reading

Win prizes!  Reading programs for all ages in June and July every year.

ADULTS: Friends of the Library

When COVID restrictions are not in place, the Friends meet at 2:00 pm on the 3rd Monday of January, February, March, June, July, September, October, and November.

In recent years, the Friends have raised several thousand dollars a year for new equipment, programming, and materials. Last year, the Friends renewed the library's subscription to "Book Page," a monthly publication available to library patrons for free paid for library programming for adults and children, including the Summer Reading Program. Everyone is welcome to join the Friends!

ADULTS: Mystery Book Club

Meets the 3rd Monday each month from 4:00-5:00 pm

If you love reading mysteries and whodunnits - this is the club for you!

ADULTS: Parchment Action Team

Third Thursday, 7:00 pm

Meet with your neighbors to discuss ways to make Parchment a great place to live.  Develop ideas into hands-on projects for volunteers and/or into proposals for the City Commission.  

For more information, go to https://parchmentactionteam.wixsite.com/team.  There you'll find meeting agendas and minutes, photos of current and completed projects, and data from our 2017 Community Survey.

Our motto is "We find and we fix" - this is a group that gets things done! Share your talents with your community!

KIDS: 1000 Books Before Kindergarten

Book by book, step by step, help your child get ready for school and start a life-long love of reading and learning.  


How the program works:

  • Register your child, at any age before they enter 5-year old Kindergarten, for this FREE do-it-at-home program.

  • Your child will receive a program folder which will contain their first reading log to record the first 100 books read together.

  • For every 100 books you read, your child will receive fun rewards.  It's OK to read the same book several times.
