Join us for another Japanese Sword Demonstration!

Join us this coming Saturday (5/23/15) in celebrating Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month with our yearly Japanese sword demonstration. The art of drawing the Japanese sword, known as Iaido or Iaijutsu, was a fundamental part of the martial training for the feudal Japanese warrior (Samurai). Come meet modern practitioners of the art, and see it performed! It starts at 1pm, in the meeting room.

Help a Neighbor to a Better Life. Become an ESL Tutor!

Most of us take for granted that we can speak and be understood. That is a luxury many of your neighbors don't have. But with only a few hours a week and a willingness to help, you can change that: Become an ESL tutor at HCPL.

Our next free training session is Tuesday, May 26. 1:00 - 6:00 p.m. at Evelyn Meador Branch Library.
No teaching experience is necessary.

Hoople T-Shirt Winner!

Thanks to a staff member’s suggestion, we had one of our Hoopla t-shirts on display behind our information desk to advertise the new Hoopla Digital access. One day a customer asked if she could buy one. Since they weren’t for sale, I decided to hold a Hoopla T-shirt Drawing as another great way to attract attention to the library’s newest streaming service.

Johnette Downing coming April 18th!

The Evelyn Meador Library will once again be hosting award winning children's author and performer Johnette Downing! She'll be here April 18th @ 2pm.
