What's Happening At The Book Store

The book store is requesting used cartridges that can be turned in for “Staples Rewards.”  This funding helps to keep the book store up and running.  Please drop your cartridges off at the bookstore during business hours. 

The book store will be open for A Taste of Sylva on Saturday, October 4, all day.  Between 1-5 p.m. make any purchase and receive a free T-shirt.  Spend $5 and receive your choice of note cards or ornament. 

Always Try the FOL Used Book Store FIRST

The used book store saves students money on books for classes.  A mother dropped by to praise the book store for its wonderful, wide selection of both classics and books for pleasure. Rising freshman Bryce Ammons was having trouble finding All Quiet on the Western Front for his AP history class summer reading.  He walked into the book store and there it was!

Calendar (continued)

Thursday, November 6 - 6 pm. Beginning Bookmaking for Kids (ages 5 and up) with Gayle Woody. These books are an excellent vehicle for personal writing, poetry, photo collages, and any other small artistic endeavors. The particular method she will be teaching is the simple long-stitch binding method; it is beginning level book art. All materials will be provided.

Saturday, November 8 - 10 am - 4 pm. Copper Hammering Workshop with William Rogers. Ages 14 and above; space is limited so signup is necessary. You will make a wearable copper pendant or badge using the ancient technique of repoussé. The class will begin by creating a two-dimensional design that will be transferred to flat copper. Then you will learn to use punches and hammers to bring your piece into a third dimension. This technique was used to create the Statue of Liberty and is the same method used by prehistoric Americans to form copper panels like the copper artifact that will be used as a teaching tool in the classroom.

Tuesdays & Thursdays - 10 am. Noon. Adult literacy classes in the Genealogy Room at the Library Complex. More info
