Ikebana with Keiko

Do you enjoy flowers?  Want to do something more than simply plant them in a pot?  Then come to the library on Wednesday, September 23rd, at 10:30 AM as Keiko Moeller presents a program on the beautiful art and craft of Ikebana.  Participants will receive hands-on instruction from Keiko and will be able to take their creations home for display or for more practice.  Registration is required and space is limited, so please contact staff ahead of time to get your name on the list and to find out what materials need to be brought.  Join us for this fun and informative program!

Library Time as I See It!

To me, library time has a whole different meaning than real time.  Ever since I began working at a public library, I’ve lived two weeks in the future, date-due time.  When we still wrote checks (does anyone remember those?), I always had to ask, ”What day is it?”  I never seemed to know the actual date.
