Celebrate African American History Month With Us!

I love our national holidays that celebrate history and culture. Working at the library, I get the opportunity to plan and participate in programs that teach me more about cultures and to interact with peoples that I wouldn’t get to otherwise. That is why I am so excited that February is African American History Month and you should definitely be too. We have some amazing activities for all ages that will allow you to learn more about African American heritage and history, while having fun at the same time. Here are some of the great activities we have planned:

Learn About 3D Printing!

With the holidays going on, our 3D printing orientations have been a little less consistent lately. However, The Evelyn Meador Library is proud to say that that has changed now. We'll be back on schedule with orientations on January 26th and February 9th at 2:00.

These sessions are open to all ages. The orientation session will introduce participants to 3D printing in the library, with information on where the county's 3D printers are, how to sign up to use them, how to create 3D projects, and how the printers work. Those completing the class will be able to schedule time on the 3D printer to print your 3D objects.
