    Due to the popularity of this workshop, leader Linda Spear has added a third class! If there is a book in you, a memoir, a fictional recounting of a time in your life or an historical tome, there is no greater time to preserve your written words in a class with other students who are exploring an idea, a work in progress, or a chapter in their life. Bring your ideas, pen and paper (or laptop) so that within a few short weeks you will have developed the strategies to become a lifelong writer. People of all skill levels are welcome. Space is limited for this popular class, so register early! Please register on our online calendar here or call 9141-232-5717.

    Everyone is creative in some way, whether it is planning an exquisite meal, knitting a gorgeous scarf, painting a masterpiece, or crafting a handmade card. Come together and share a moment with other creative individuals. Bring your own project to work on or open one of the library’s Art Boxes for an easy, self-directed project. Work in family groups or with a group of friends. This is a great opportunity for families to spend some quality time together. We ask that school age children come with an adult. Attend every week or periodically when available. There are plenty of supplies on hand on the Art Cart as well as some coloring books in case you want a calm, meditative task. All are encouraged to share their work in a fun, supportive atmosphere.

    Facilitated by Jen Armbruster and Debbie Rizzo, one or both of whom will be available each week to answer questions, provide suggestions, offer feedback, or organize an exhibition of the work in a Library display case.
