Library News ~ June 11, 2015

Dr. LockettFamily Story Time will begin tonight at 6:15 p.m. in the library’s Community Room with our special guest Dr. Michael Lockett, The Normal Storyteller. He has entertained around the world with his original stories and music. Plan to join us this evening for great family fun. We have many of his books and audiobooks available to check out at the library.

The Heyworth Public Library has recently added a teen art class for this summer. Join the Mclean County Art Rover Program for a session on 3-D art for teens on June 25 and 26 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the library. The class is free for 11 year olds – 18 year olds. Ms. Kelly Robertson will help students explore how masks have been used throughout time in many cultures to tell stories—whether to warn children of dangers, share legends, or to teach historical events. They are also used to disguise or transport us to other worlds in theater. We will be painting, collaging, and gluing onto mask bases to create our finished pieces. Limited space, sign up necessary.
