“The number of programs we are offering for adults is growing,” says Martin Library Adult and Information Service Librarian Angela Orwig. “This spring, our staff pulled together a variety of activities which appeal to history and true crime buffs, ‘how-to’ and tea enthusiasts.”  According to Orwig, past library tea parties have been very popular. “Our upcoming Springtime Tea is just in time for Mother’s Day and is also perfect for a girlfriends’ day out,” she adds. 
Additional programs this spring include a presentation by Barbara Landis from the Cumberland County Historical Society at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 28.  She will recount the history and controversy surrounding the Carlisle Indian Industrial School.
