September is National Sewing Month, so the library has teamed up with the Lodi Valley Quilters Guild for a special project during this month's Artful Adults workshops.

Join us at 6:30 pm Wednesday, September 14 at the library for a make-and-take table runner project. Volunteers from LVQG will be on hand for guidance. As always, all materials are provided - just bring your enthusiasm and a sense of adventure! 

Artful Adults is a monthly workshop (second Wednesday) for adults who are interested in arts, crafts, and living a fanciful life full of creativity. 

Advance registration is required and limited to 10 attendees: phone 592-4130 or stop at the library desk to sign up.

Book discussion: Vintage

Vintage by Susan Gloss

Join us Monday, August 29 for a pair of book discussion on the Madison-based fiction novel Vintage by Susan Gloss.

We're hosting two discussion sessions: 

  • at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
  • again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.

At Hourglass Vintage every item has a story to tell … and so do the women whose lives the store touches. Violet Turner, owner of Hourglass Vintage, anchors this debut about the transformative power of female friendship. Each item of clothing in the shop has a rich history; her own past, however, she’s happy to forget. Two other women rotate around Violet and Hourglass Vintage: Amithi, from India, who has just learned of her husband’s affair, and April, a pregnant 18-year-old mourning the loss of her mother. Both assist Violet as she attempts to buy the shop and prevent developers from converting the building into condos. 

We have books available for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - just stop in and take home a copy!
