Here’s a sampling of what you can do at Darien Library in the coming week: learn about opioids in Darien, a financial literacy roundtable, how to explain the birds and the bees to your kids, and kids can learn about the royal wedding.

— This announcement is from the Darien Library weekly events newsletter. You can browse Darien Library events here.

We are delighted to celebrate the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with a Royal Wedding Tea on Thursday, May 17 at 4 p.m. Learn about royal wedding history, participate in some parlor games, and nibble on some traditional treats from afternoon tea. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to snap a selfie with the Queen herself!
