What’s Happening at the Library
Mark your calendars for May 16th at 6:00 pm! The library welcomes Mike Anderson--the Dulcimer Guy. Mike is described as “…the quintessential folklorist and musician.” A reviewer on his webpage states that “Anderson’s whimsy and wit are always a hit with the children and parents as he introduces the musical instruments that traveled in the pockets and saddlebags of pioneer men and women as they moved across young America. Anderson also sings folk songs, many which are teaching songs and moral tales, sprinkled with his own original music and lyrics.”
On display at the library this month is the pottery and ceramic art of Whittney Corum. Ms. Corum’s work is creative, whimsical, and well worth your visit. Also on display are paintings, historical photos, and fascinating information about the old Creitz Mill in our town. It is interesting to see four different artist’s perspectives on the mill.
Preschoolers and toddlers: bring your parents and caregivers on Tuesdays at 10:30 am to Mother Goose on the Loose. Ms. Kim will share rhymes, stories, music, and activities to help you have fun and develop pre-literacy skills.
From 11am to 1pm on Tuesday, April 24th, Ambassador Health is offering a health screening and health information at the library. Drop by to check up on your blood pressure and more.
Also on Tuesday, April 24th, the library is thrilled to host a candidates’ forum for our community. According to Brenda McLane of Hometown Media Group, “The 3 races featured will be: Wayne County Sheriff; Wayne County Council District 3; and Indiana House District 56. The evening will feature light refreshments and moderated discussion facilitated by James A. King, and Q & A from the audience.” Thank you to Hometown Media Group for organizing this event. I am looking forward to hearing from our candidates!
Come to our introduction to bullet journaling session, “Do U do BUJO?” on Wednesday, April 25th at 6:00 p.m. to talk about how to organize and document your life. The presenter is a beginning BUJO wannabe, but she’s found some good videos to share to help get you started.
In May, book clubs at the library are all about sisters! On May 22nd at 6:30 pm, the Evening Book Club will discuss The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson . Our Morning Book Club is reading Sisters First: Stories From Our Wild and Wonderful Life by Jenna Bush Hager.
