Wild weaving encourages free expression, experimentation and joyous abandon in your weaving.

Driftwood, shells, natural yarns and beach finds will interweave to create a unique piece of art! Beautiful visuals and mood music will make for a serene atmosphere. Your wild weaving will emerge like a walk on the beach as you discover and enjoy different treasures! Finishing techniques will make your piece ready to frame or display as is.

Nature- Animals,
Visual Arts- Folk Arts
Laura Ingalls Day is a compilation of programs normally taught in a 1 hour block, designed for a kickoff or finale to summer reading, or an event that will bring in patrons during the winter. Starting with sugaring off, we will make sugar on snow, then move onto fresh butter, cheese, and sourdough bread. Next we will plant a garden on the library grounds or start transplants for growing on the windowsill. We can wash up with home made old fashioned lye soap, and hand dip candles. Wrap it all up by meeting farm animals and learning to care for them just like Laura and Mary. Based on book: Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this program can incorporate reading the book and eating between stations. The program can last 4-8 hours, depending on age group and individual or combinations of stations. Great for the 2019 summer reading program.

Crocker, Keith Alfred Hitchcock - Founding Father of the Stalk and Slash Genre: History,
Media- Film,
Visual Arts- Other
Ok, we've already seen programs about the importance of Alfred Hitchcock's output on the history of cinema. However, few people actually realize that Hitchcock was the inventor of what we call "the slasher film," films exemplified by movies such as Halloween (1978) and Friday The 13th (1980). In this program, we'll gain deep insight as we explore Alfred Hitchcock's troubled childhood where his neurosis originated from having been raised in Victorian England, and we'll ascertain how this directly resulted in his inner rage and desires being expressed through such films as The Lodger (1927), Rope (1948), Psycho (1960), Torn Curtain (1966), and Frenzy (1972). We will also examine films that were highly influenced by Hitchcock such as Bird With The Crystal Plumage (1971) and more. Not your typical take on Hitchcock, but rather the turning of a whole new page in the master's career.
