This summer, instead of traditional in-person programming, the Goodnow Library will offer virtual and take-home activities!

Check out our Teen Calendar for details about virtual programs on Zoom. We’ll have a variety of programs such as Maker Monday crafts, at-home baking tutorials, virtual Escape Rooms, online Book Clubs, and more!

All virtual programs will require registration and have limited spaces, so keep an eye out!


Children and adults can also join in the fun of Summer @ Goodnow. Find out more about Children Summer Reading HERE . Find out more about Adult Summer Reading HERE.
