Altamont Library Notes for Thursday, February 27, 2014

Do you think music is overdue in Altamont?  You may be right.

Your local library is looking to fix this situation.

Our remedy?   An Open Mic Night this Friday evening, Feb. 28.

And along with singers and players, groups and soloists, we’re also hoping for writers, poets, and comedians — anyone with material to present to an appreciative audience.

Sign-up begins at 7:00 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30.

Global art

This program should attract people of all ages.  Participants will design and create flags that express a personal vision of world peace.

At the conclusion, the flags will be sent to and exchanged with another group of peace-seeking artists.

It’s a small step.  Lots of good things start with small steps.

Meet at the library on Saturday, March 1, at 10 a.m.


The next adult craft project features making a purse from a used book.  Join us and see how it’s done: Monday, March 3, at 7 p.m.

We’ll supply the books, or you can bring a favorite of your own.

Book Club

The first adult book-club gathering of the month will take place on Monday, March 3, at noon, in the library.  We’ll be discussing Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
