This Week @ the Library: Nov. 11-16

This week at the library offers a fun and informative array of programs. Learn how to dye fabric with rust, make milk change colors, whip up some holiday treats for a bake-off, paint rocks with friends and much more. 

Just a reminder that Monday is Veterans Day and all of our libraries will be closed. You can still visit our website to access online resources and order books and other materials.

Meet the Author

Author Deborah Nedelman will visit our Peshastin library to talk about her latest book What We Take For Truth, a story about a young girl who perseveres despite it all. Deborah worked as a Clinical Psychologist for 30 years. She's written many non-fiction works and began writing fiction novels after she retired.
