Altamont Library Notes for Thursday, February 20, 2014

For a while there was music in Altamont. At Desolation Road right in the center of town. Concerts and open-mic nights. Then everything stopped. “Desolation” turned out to be sadly apt.

The Altamont Free Library wants to bring the music back.  Music and more. We’re hosting our first ever Open Mic Night this Friday, Feb. 28. We’re welcoming musicians, singers and players, poets, writers, comedians, and others. We’re also hoping for an enthusiastic audience.  

Sign up begins at 7 p.m. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. You won’t need any Do Re Mi. It’s free. Call us at 861-7239 if you have questions or comments.

Downton Abbey tea

We’ll mark the end of the Downton Abbey season with a tea party, while we screen episode 8 of season 4, on Sunday, Feb. 23, at 2:30 p.m. Be so kind as to let us know if you plan to attend.

Que bueno

We’re off to Mexico for this month’s Pot Luck Around the World. The date is Monday, Feb. 24, at 6 p.m., at the library. Let us know if you’re coming, por favor.  Bring a dish to share.

Global art project

This is one for all ages.  We’ll be designing flags that express a vision of world peace and exchange them with another group of artists from somewhere far away. It might make the world smaller, and safer. The date is Saturday, March 1, at 10 a.m.
