Featured Friday Programs

The Featured Friday series was started in January 2015 to provide programs of cultural, historical and local interest to library visitors. It has continued to include an eclectic variety of presenters and topics. Many of the guest speakers are college professors and several of them have connections to the Deer Park community. Others have subject matter expertise or real world experience.
