- Fabulous Fibers Exhibit

Fabulous Fibers are being exhibited during the months of January and February! On display are beautiful handmade quilts, rugs, and felted booties. For the first time, we have weaving on display, featuring wool from rare breeds of sheep. Please come and enjoy these fiber arts.
On Thursday, February 2, at 6:00, there will be an Open House, followed at 6:30 with Margaret Russell's Weaving Legends on rare sheep breeds with stories and hands-on!
There will be other programs tied into this exhibit:rug making demonstrations, and even a chance to bring in your own fiber activity to share with others!
- NEW at the Library
The Library has many online resources for you to use from downloading a book or song to learning a language. Sometimes it may be overwhelming to try to learn which resources are most useful to YOU.
The Library now has quick tutorials on how to get started on some of these resources. In most cases, there is a short introduction with additional videos on how to get started. Instructions on how to download books also include specific devices. You'll see them on the Resources and Databases and Downloadable Books as a nifty side slider page! And within those pages, there are also links to the tutorials. We hope they will help you!
We will list here tutorial additions on using social media programs:
