Just in time for October and Halloween....not for the faint-of-heart, storyteller Priscilla Howe tells her favorite creepy stories, perfect for adults and teens (middle school and above). Come if you dare!
The Linwood quilting group, Quilts for Veterans , will be presenting handmade quilts for area veterans. During this presentation, each veteran will have their story told and then be presented with their own quilt. Family, friends, and the public are welcome to attend to honor these veterans!
We're excited to have Marla Jackson coming to the library this November! She will be bringing some of her work to show and talk about.
Marla's quilts are true works of art and historical storytelling. Marla is a community-based visual art educator. Her works have been exhibited in over thirty-five national and international venues, including the American Folk Art Museum, The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. One of her most famous works, is part of the permanent collection, at Smithsonian's Anacostia Community. Jackson's narrative quilts are inspired by the oral histories of her ancestors and the Kansas region.
Many local citizens gather at the library to drink coffee and enjoy snacks. There is a freewill donation taken. All are welcome, but come prepared to defend your political opinions!
A potluck lunch is held every Tuesday in the Marceline Turner room. Bring your favorite dish and join the conversation!
You may appreciate this class if:
Bring yoga mat if possible, but there will be a few extra mats available. Donations to instructor acceptable.
Have extra yarn you want to donate? We'll take your yarn!
An informal knitting gathering. Knitters of all skill levels are welcome. If you would like to learn to knit, our staff will be happy to teach you the basics.
This group creates quilts in honor of veterans who have served their country. These quilts are then given to selected veterans to cherish. All levels of quilting ability are welcome. Check out further information on the Quilts for Veterans page.
A staff member from the Council will be on hand each month to answer questions regarding services or for appropriate referrals. No appointment is necessary. In the event of inclement weather the event will be cancelled for that time.
