Learn About The Grotesque
Armed with only a camera, a sense of humor and a host of frequent flyer miles, Mathew Duman embarked on a “grotesque safari”, traveling to 10 universities around the country to photograph the grotesques and gargoyles roosting on their academic buildings. Mathew found that this sculpture makes its home within a style of architecture known as Collegiate Gothic which was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. He has collected his findings in his new book called: “The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges and Universities “ and presents a selection of them in this lecture, giving you a taste of the variety of ornament, history and humor these campuses have to offer.
Time to yell “Fore!”
Play mini-golf in the library on Sat, Feb 2 from 11 to 4. Cost is $5 per individual and $15 for families. This fundraiser will help update and freshen up our Children’s Room. Days before you tee off on our 18 hole course, visit the library to bid on Silent Auction items. There will also be a raffle the day of the event. And, from 11 – 2 pm hungry putters can buy lunch from local restaurants!
Local businesses and organizations are helping us make this day a “hole in one” for everyone by sponsoring holes, donating items for our Silent Auction, and providing raffle prizes.
Help! We are just a little more than halfway to this year’s Annual Drive goal of $18,000.
Contributions made to the Annual Drive are put to immediate use. Checks, cash, and PayPal donations are transformed into books, DVDs, digital content, programs, and opened hours. Last year’s Annual Drive became 400 programs, 2,000 times our computers were used, five books per capita borrowed, and digital access 24/7 to music, movies, magazines, and books! How much do you value these services and programs? Please give accordingly, if you have not already. If you have given, Thank you! Building a library is a labor of love and you are showing your love!
