The Heyworth Public Library District celebrated our past by connecting with the Barn Quilt Heritage Trail of McLean County. The library’s inclusion in this countywide effort with a Railroad Crossing quilt pattern block was a perfect way to tie our agricultural and railroad history to the 75th birthday of the library. The library unveiled the quilt block on the library’s birthday, May 19, 2016.  Reid Young, Program Coordinator, Local Food Systems and Small Farms at the University of Illinois Extension was on hand to answer questions and field interest in the Barn Quilt Heritage Trail of McLean County .

Local quilter, Kim Travers, wrote out instructions to replicate the Railroad Crossing quilt block.  They can be found by clicking the link below.

Have you picked up your copy of The Crucible by Arthur Miller? Ann is a direct descendant of two persons accused of being witches executed during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. She also had a third relative who was condemned but not hanged. One of these descendants was Rebecca Towne Nurse, a character in Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible. Join the Heyworth Public Library in reading The Crucible in October and hearing Ann's fascinating family study. Multiple copies will be available for checkout during October at the circulation desk.
