The 25th Street Market starts up again this coming Saturday, the day before Mother’s Day, and the Friends of the NL Library will be doing a fundraiser. Thanks to Rudy’s Greenhouse, we will have gorgeous hanging baskets available at a spectacular price as well as 4-packs of herbs and zonal geraniums (always a favorite)!
• 10′ hanging baskets = $18
• 4-pack herbs = $5
• geraniums = $3.50
If you are a member of the Friends, bring your membership card for a further discount! IT PAYS TO BE A FRIEND OF THE NORTH LOGAN LIBRARY!
Apart from the beautiful flowers, there will also be quality handmade items available to choose from to surprise your mom with. Or shop for yourself! Summer is on its way—worth celebrating!
Come and join us in kicking off the market’s 2nd season!
There will be no Authors & Illustrators event in May.
But we’d like to alert you to the fact that the 25th Street Market starts again—on Saturday, May 7, the day before Mother’s Day!
There will be early-season vegetables and vegetable and plant starts available. In addition, our non-produce vendors will have many, lovely hand-made items available. Treat your mom to a quality hand-crafted item made by one of the artisans in your very own community. It will mean so much more than a mass-produced item made in China.
The Friends will sell hanging baskets and herb starts. They will be available at a good price and will be a fundraiser. If you are going to buy any of these items anyways, then please come and support your local library with your purchase on May 7!
See you there!

Please join us on April 1 for our 2nd event in our new “Authors & Illustrators” series:
Prof. Meier has just released a book, in which he showcases a large selection of dams from the US and Europe, photographed over a 5-year period. He will show his images, describe the process and what drove him to pursue this particular project.
While dams may be viewed as heroic feats of engineering or as ecological disasters, Prof. Meier foregrounds their fascinating architecture, presenting their visual impact from one single perspective.
Dams boldly interrupt nature, not only through the physical act of stemming the tide of a river but also visually, via their introduction of a man-made color palette of concrete, brick and steel into the landscape. But perhaps Mother Nature will still have the final word. In some of the images of the older structures, the surrounding habitat can be seen claiming back its territory; moss quietly crawls over the smooth concrete cliff faces, slowly but surely asserting itself: a reminder that nature is force that cannot truly be contained.
Many of these images are presently being exhibited at the MANIFEST Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. Prof. Meier has previously given a glimpse at his dam project with an exhibit on Utah State University’s campus.
The book will be available for preview at the library.
Light refreshments and a raffle, as well as music dealing with dams will round out the evening.

Thank you to all those elves (from the library, the Friends, the 25th Street Market, and non-affiliated others) who helped make the first Winter Bookmark a success!
We had so much fun. In the morning, the little ones came for storytime. At noon, Santa made an appearance! In the afternoon, we had authors who signed their books, writers who read from their works, and Logan’s Poet Laureate, who held an intimate workshop with the few who were brave enough to write a poem and then read it out loud. Students from our local middle and high schools came and sang French and German Christmas songs. And anybody who wanted to could learn how to make a three-dimensional star.
All day, vendors from the 25th Street Market offered their quality handmade items for sale in the conference room. In the library’s café, you were able to buy the yummiest treats and hot chocolate or tea or soda and take a break from the busy pre-Christmas season while listening to soothing, beautiful harp music.
If you joined the Friends of the NL Library, you had several options to participate and receive beautiful gifts with your membership.
The librarians gave tours of the MakerSpace. All of the proceeds from this event will be going to buy a 3D printer to be added to the MakerSpace.
We hope to see you and your friends again next year!
