Library Programs & Events

Literature of the Land Book Club

Join us for Literature of the Land, a book club series hosted by the Helen Fowler Library. We’ll read three books over three months, focusing on a specific topic of interest.

Registration is mandatory as attendance will be limited in number to allow for interactive discussion in a friendly group setting. The cost is $5 per session, $15 for all three sessions.

Fall 2020 Session

This fall we will be exploring the world alongside the people who brought us our rich cornucopia of food and digging deep into the symbiotic relationships between people and our edible plants. We’ll be asking the questions on how these foods were discovered, why they became staples and what the future of our food looks like.

Color Our Collections Coloring Fest

The Helen Fowler Library takes part in #ColorOurCollections, a week-long coloring fest on social media, generally occurring the first full week of February, alongside libraries, archives and other cultural institutions around the world. Using materials from our collections, we are sharing free coloring content with the hashtag #ColorOurCollections and inviting followers to color along and get creative with our collections. #ColorOurCollections was launched by The New York Academy of Medicine Library in 2016.

Break open the colored pencils or crayons and enjoy the soothing exercise of coloring our past submissions for Color Our Collections. You can print four botanical illustration coloring pages.
