When you make notations in your calendar to attend the various study groups entered on our website calendar, please check carefully for the exact day of the week, place, and time.Several of the facilities we have consistently used in the past have received grants for renovations, and we occasionally use other locations to continue to offer certain study groups. This is an ongoing situation with the libraries and will continue for some time.
We try to alert you where there is a change at each calendar entry, but want to stress that you check carefully so that you go to the right location on the right day and at the correct time.
Unfortunately, this is beyond our control, and we are trying to make it as convenient as possible. Please bear with us as we manage this juggling act, and continue to enjoy the various programs offered.
