We look forward to offering exciting spaces for families; spaces for artists and creators; and plenty of room for the community to gather and learn. Please feel free to contact me about what’s planned for your library.

The Hyperbolic Crochet Wisteria Sculpture is a community driven project of knitted and crochet yarn creating a sculpture that will showcase the strength, individuality and diversity of the local community. When assembled, it will be a stunning, kaleidoscope of color and energy.
