Calling Area Quilters!

With the weather turning colder, we want to extend an invitation to our area quilters. As most of you know, March is National Quilting Month. The past two years we have displayed quilts in our lobby during the month of March. We would like to feature your quilts in March of 2018!


For more information on quilt specifications or to have one of your quilts displayed, fill out the following application and return it to us with your quilt at the beginning of February. Also, stay tuned for programming that will be offered throughout March. For now, have fun preparing your quilts to be delivered to the library in February!

Naudia Greenawalt, with special guest, Linkin Eger

Saturday, December 16 | 2:00—3:30pm

Heritage Room

No registration is needed.8 year old author, Naudia Greenawalt, wrote about her 7 year old friend, Linkin Eger, and his battle with brain cancer. Interviewing him only in a way a child can and chronicling his journey, Naudia describes what cancer is, what chemo is, and the fight to get better. “My Friend Linkin” is a story written by a child for children. Explaining cancer in a way that kids can understand and teaching them the strength a human soul can have, this book is perfect for those who want to learn about the medical world and increase their understanding for those who are currently in a battle for life. You can follow Naudia and Linkin’s journey on their Facebook site: “My Friend Linkin”. Naudia’s book will be available to purchase for $15 and according to Naudia’s wishes, all proceeds will go to Linkin and his family.
