Something for Everyone @ Your Library
In the upstairs community room, Ewenique Knitters Guild of Paducah sponsored Beth Brown-Reinsel this weekend for a knitters workshop at McCracken County Public Library.
One participant described the Gansey techniques Brown-Reinsel taught as folk knitting. The samples of sweaters and mittens were lovely even as they were functional, being originally developed as “hard-wearing garments for hard-working fishermen.”
Meanwhile, outside in the Paducah Garden Club’s Gazebo Garden, the Paducah Imperials, a local Star Wars FanForce club, conducted a yard sale to raise funds for local community projects.
Stormtroopers and Darth Vader entertained bargain buyers and book browsers alike. Intrigued passersby checked in for photo opportunities with the costumed characters and library customers checked out the Star Wars activities after checking out the library’s books and DVDs.
Stop by some weekend. You just might be surprised to know who might turn up next @ your library.
