What's Up at the Library?
Ranging up to 17 feet high, some buildings are designed to expose their internal structure, so visitors can view the complex and intricate design and engineering that goes into construction of the models. This one-of-a-kind, museum-quality exhibit debuted at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago in 2009 and has since been displayed across the United States.
Kevin Chapman, the MadPiper, will introduce you to the history of the pipes and the story behind one of the oldest instruments still played in the world. He will give a demonstration and display of the regalia surrounding them. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
When John Mazurek, a member of local knitting club that meets weekly at the library, moved away last December, his leaving inspired the group to become crafty in more ways than one.
One week later, the group was back to their usual library meeting place, Conference Room H. Yarn, knitting needles and as hoped for, John in attendance via Skype.
