Next Library Lecture: A Wooly Adventure on Wed, October 12

Please join us for the next in our monthly Library Lecture series on Wednesday, October 12 at 7 pm.

Wendy Booth will present “A Wooly Adventure (Shetland and North Yorkshire UK)” – all about her travels to Shetland Wool Week in England.

An avid knitter, she attended classes, lectures, met top knitwear designers and knit her way around the islands. Next she stopped in North Yorkshire, where she found more sheepy fun as well as toured a famous country house and quaint villages. She will share a small display of her knitting goodies from Wool Week 2015.

This is free and open to all – refreshments will be served.

If you noticed several trucks and lots of activity at the library last Sunday – we were the setting for a local film shoot. Our lovely meeting room was used for a scene that may appear in the “The True Believers”. They also used the Country Store as a setting for some other parts of the film. Above is photo of some of the cast and crew.
