All of our official PAAC events will be virtual, at least for the remainder of the calendar year.


The Board decided that is is simply not safe to gather groups indoors until a vaccine is widely available. Our teams are up to the challenge of offering us great PAAC experiences in alternative ways.


Keep your eyes open for the Zoom-based enrichment sessions that will replace our monthly networking meetings at the library.


Watch for your opportunity to sign up for interactive creative workshops that we’ll be offering each month beginning in September.


What a marvelous job we have done over the past months. Our leadership has embraced change and continued PAAC’s mission in such exciting ways.


Go, team!
