Join us at the Washington Park Library on Thursday January 10 at 6:30pm!
Have you ever wondered what to do with your old books that are collecting dust on your bookshelf? Well, ponder no longer! Come join us for a workshop to learn how to recycle your old books into a beautiful folded book vase. Get creative and make something to keep or to gift. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is! This program is free and open to any adults interested. All materials provided.
Hosted by Amy Rosa, Library Manager at Washington Park Library. Amy has been creating book art and running similar types of library programs for the past 10 years. She loves being able to link two passions of hers-books and crafts- together. For more information on her programs, contact her at 401-781-3136 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us for our new kids and teens writing group at the Washington Park Library on Tuesday January 8 at 3:30pm! This informal writing group will focus on different creative writing exercises each month. This month we will have special guest author Katie Bayerl in to host! When Katie Bayerl isn’t penning stories, she coaches teens and nonprofits to tell theirs. She currently leads the VCFA Young Writers Network and teaches classes for teens at GrubStreet. A Psalm for Lost Girls is her first novel.
This month, Katie will be showing us how to do “story sparks”–i.e., the personal interests and experiences that can feed our fiction and what happens when we link up two or more “sparks” into one story idea. Join us!
Open to ages 9 and up. Registration recommended. Please call 401-781-3136 or email Amy Rosa email@example.com to sign up.
