In the youth section of the library you will find a bright and beautiful quilt on display. This quilt was created by Carol-Ann Koch-Weser as a fundraiser for the Collin Anderson Endowment. Tickets are on sale at the circulation desk for $1 per ticket or a packet of 6 for $5. The raffle drawing will take place at Libations for the Library on May 10th from 6:30-9:00pm.

On Thursday, March 9th at 6:30 pm, Sarah Gotowka will give an artist talk on her textile work and historical practices that contextualize this work. Sarah has established a weaving studio called Luna Fiber on Main Street in Trumansburg where she teaches classes.
Sarah Gotowka is adopted Korean-Polish-Italian-American, and grew up in the suburbs of Rochester where she obsessively made mix tapes from 90’s radio airplay and built makeshift forts in the woods. She received her BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art majoring in Fiber and Material Studies in 2007, and graduated with an MFA from Concordia University’s Fiber and Material Practices in 2013.
Please join us in the Melvin Community room for this free and open event.
