First Fridays

We currently have an ongoing First Friday partnership series with Print: A Bookstore. Every month, a new author is invited to the Mechanics’ Hall library during Art Walk to discuss their work, often in conversation with another author.

Discussions typically take place from 7-8pm.

We post scheduled author chats here and on our events blog.

We also send information in our monthly e-blasts.

Mechanics’ Hall is proud to host a variety of programs, including book clubs, craft events, and much more. Currently, all of our events are virtual.
