Art In The Library

Any interested artists, who have artwork or photographs that they would like to display at the library, can call the library at 658-2927. We have wall space to display your art and would love to hear from you. There is no charge to display it here.

Currently we are displaying pictures celebrating the Fox Hollow Folk Festival which began in Petersburgh on August 19, 1966 and ran through 1980.  Be sure to stop in and view these wonderful photographs and add your memories of the Festival in the folder at the library.

 In the display case are felted items hand-made by Deb Poczatek of Petersburgh.

 

Book Discussion Group

The group meets at 7:00 P.M. on the second Wednesday of each month. The next book club meeting is on September 10th at 7:00 PM.  The book to be discussed is Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel.

The books being discussed are available from the Library so you can read them prior to the meeting.  New members are always welcome to join. Please join us even if you are only able to come once in a while or just want to come for the books in which you are interested.
