Tea Time at Roeliff Jansen Library

Roeliff Jansen Library presents a new monthly tea time social event. Every fourth Thursday, Library Associate Fran Colombo will host a special tea time featuring guided conversation, crafts, special guests, and local tea and coffee options provided by the Library. Who couldn’t use a little tea and conversation in the new year?

Each month’s gathering will have a different theme; listen, discuss, and enjoy a cup of tea (or coffee if that’s your preference!), and sometimes a fun activity. There will also be plenty of time to chat, get to know your neighbors, and wind down. No registration required. For the first meeting, we will be joined by Noel Fair, a tax advisor, to discuss tax season, finances, and other New Year topics.

DATE/TIME: Thursday, January 26, 2023 / 2:30 – 3:30pm

LOCATION: Roeliff Jansen Community Library
