Stop by the 5th floor Art & Music Department to see an exhibit of collages collaboratively created by library users!
Library users were invited to check out collages to work on between January and August of 2017. They could take a collage started by another person home and add, remove, or change whatever they liked about their collage before returning it for someone else to check out. Each collage went through five rounds of edits before it was completed. The resulting collages are on display during regular library hours through September 30.
Join us in the third floor Community Meeting Room for a closing reception for the Round Table Collaboration at the Library collage project and accompanying exhibit.

2nd floor Reference Desk and Historic Lobby
Meet at the 2nd floor Reference Desk for a tour of our 36th Annual Quilt Show. We've got antiques from the 1880s, and just-completed contemporary abstract works. There's tremendous variety, history and art in our diverse show, which includes all sizes, from large bed quilts to postcards. Come hear the stories behind the quilts, and meet some of the quilters and exhibitors.
Come and learn the basics of water based linoleum block printing in a hands-on workshop with artist Max Stadnik. We will cover everything from planning out your image, simple carving technique, inking & printing, and basic curation. The method you will learn can be done with very few resources in your own home or studio. By the end of the workshop you will have a few color prints and your own hand carved block that you can print anytime.
Ages 12 and up are welcome at this workshop, and no experience is required.
CLASS AND WAIT-LIST ARE FILLED!
A teaching artist from the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse will help kids make a simple puppet from recycled materials! Ages 5 and up.
