Clarkson Public Library will be hosting a quilt show over the Czech Days weekend and we need your help! We are looking for local quilters who would like to participate in this event by allowing us to display your handiwork. We are willing to accept quilts of any size as long as it has been made (pieced or quilted) by a local quilter. Our definition of a local quilter is that the quilter must have ties to Clarkson (originally from here, family still local, library patron, etc.). We have already received some enthusiastic commitments from the Silver Thread Social group and our area 4-Her’s, so please contact the library to be added to the list of items. There is not a time line for when the quilt must have been made and this is not a contest, we would just like to recognize what our local (and usually hidden) talent has been up to in Clarkson. Please contact Melissa at the library for more information or with questions, we would love to hear from you! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 892-3235 anytime and leave a message. We would like to have a list of entries and participants by June 1 so we can plan accordingly.
Our website is getting a makeover, just like the library! Please bear with us as we are under construction over the next few weeks…we are testing out new themes and figuring out how they work with all the information we want to provide to our patrons. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know, we would love to hear from you as we complete this process, just send us an email at email@example.com!
Thank you so much to everyone who stopped in for our Open House today! I did get to demo the new ADA workstation and awesome new software a little bit for a few people:) We did also get a lot of bids on our Holiday Wreath Silent Auction – YAY! I am still working to get the photos uploaded, last week I had problems, emailed the IT guy, got 1 uploaded today and now the other 17 have error messages:( I guess I will be emailing him again tonight, so look for the new photos tomorrow sometime! Don’t forget the Silent Auction closes this Wednesday, December 14th at 9pm.
