Leaves are falling, there’s a nip in the air, and nightfall keeps coming earlier and earlier. That’s right–it’s really autumn now! There are all kinds of exciting events brewing at the library, so here’s a quick preview.
October 20 – A Fine Romance exhibit send-off. The exhibit that arrived in September is finally going to say goodbye–so make sure to take advantage of your last chance to view the exhibit! A Fine Romance celebrates Jewish singers and songwriters from 1910-1965. This includes such memorable artists as George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein, Irving Berlin, and many, many others.
October 26 – Stitch n’ Bitch. Hosted by Brian Hampton, this will be a regularly scheduled group activity, where crafters of all varieties–knitting, sewing, crocheting, scrapbooking, origami, anything!–can meet to create and share their crafts, and to, well… Comisserate. There will be free food! The meeting will take place at the Teacher Education Library at the bottom of the Tech Center Building.
October 28 – Candy Apple Autumn. Come to the library and create your own delicious candy apple! There will be apples, caramel, and a wide variety of tasty toppings. Enjoy your yummy concoctions while you socialize with your friends.
November 7 – New Exhibit! Abraham Lincoln: A Man of His Time, A Man For All Times will appear in the Teacher Education Library at the bottom of the Tech Center building.
