Genealogy Group


Our Genealogy Group meets the first Thursday of every month from 6:00-7:30 pm at the Library.

The Charlton Public Library Genealogy Group is a friendly group of people who share an interest in genealogy. Meetings alternate between general discussion topics and guest presenters. All are welcome; registration is not required.

Critical Thinking Discussion Group


Are you intimidated by the so-called "Great Books" and all that critical thinking stuff? Many people are, especially they you go it alone. Join some like-minded friends for a little mental workout to keep your brain in good shape!

Here's how it works: stop by the Library and pick up the selected readings (either copies or books), read the material, show up and join the discussion. Then pick up the next months' materials at the same time! This group will be facilitated by local resident and scholar David Schiller.

No experience with critical thinking discussion groups is necessary. Drop-in any month, no registration required.

Copies of discussion materials are available at the adult circulation desk one month prior to discussion.

July 26 at 1 pm: Winter’s Tales by Isak Dinesen
