In-Person Programs

Card Making Class 

Join Shannon from Stampin' Up to create winter themed greeting cards! Part of the Winter Adult Reading Program. 

Willson and McKee: Echo in Winter's Heart 

Join Wilson and McKee for stories and songs of winter! The scent of peat smoke, the sound of popping fire, the sight of dancing shadows. These are the gifts of winter. Come closer to the fire and settle in for an evening of traditional songs and stories from Ireland and Scotland. "The hardening of stream and breath, the stiffening of the bones… The silence of the farmer's field, the empty finch’s home...All echo in a winter's heart... The hollow frozen sound... And only in the flickering hearth... Warm dreams and hopes are found."
