Creative Groups and Programs for Adults

Check it Out! is the Library’s monthly newsletter highlighting adult programming, classes and library events.  Mark your calendars and come join us for lifelong fun and learning at the Library.  LINK HERE for the Newsletter. Below are additional featured programs sure to tap your creative, fun side! 

Act Out: Readers’ Theater Troupe (for Adults)

Meets fourth Tuesday of the month, 6:30pm

What is Readers Theater?  Think old-time radio shows or the more recent Twilight Zone Radio series.  Think about using your voice (and sometimes a few props or costumes) to share a great drama or comedy without memorizing a script! We hope to perform as a group live in the library and also begin a podcast featuring the fine vocal talents of our Shaler Library community. Learn more here:

SNHL Writers’ Group

Meets weekly, Mondays at 6:00pm. First three weeks are virtual via Zoom, last week in person at the Library.

Are you a creative writer? Do you want to be? Whether you create short stories, nonfiction, poetry, dialogues, TV Scripts, or existential historical fantasies – everyone who writes likes to belong to a group of like-minded creators for support and accountability.  The Shaler North Hills Library Writer’s Group could be a great free resource for you.

Please email Jim at if you have questions or are ready to join!  The Zoom link will be sent to you prior to our first meeting.
