Saturday Storytime for Families with Young Children

Weekly Storytime on Saturdays, January 6, 13, 20 and 27 at 10:30 a.m.

Book Talk and Signing with Peggy Hart on Wednesday, January 24 @ 7 p.m.

Local weaver and author Peggy Hart (www.blanketweave.com) will discuss her new book Wool: Unraveling an American Story of Artisans and Innovation at the Library on Wednesday evening January 24 at 7 p.m. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.

Hart’s book Wool is the story of technological and social change, marketing forces, and our choices as consumers. Keeping Americans warm for four centuries, wool has been an essential commodity from colonial times to the present. Its colorful and epic tale has impacted millions of lives, including artisans, inventors, immigrants, merchants, mill owners, millworkers, farmers, slaves and Native Americans.
