On the first Friday in June, we’re resuming our “Evening with Authors & Illustrators.” This time, we’re featuring Amy Choate, co-author of NAKED NUTRITION. You may have met Amy at the Winter Bookmark, where she signed copies of her book and gave advice on healthy eating. This time, she will talk about how she came about publishing a cookbook. AND WE WILL GET TO SAMPLE SOME OF HER RECIPES.

Because we expect a higher turnout for this event, you must be pre-registered to attend:

Please sign up early in order to help with planning this evening!

The preliminary plan for tasting healthy foods that Amy will prepare is centered on living, vibrant, and yummy snacks that can easily be turned into a light meal—just perfect for summer cooking!

 

Sunflower Seed Ranch Dressing & Veggie Sticks: This dressing is incredible! Not only is it plant-based, pro-biotic, and nutritious, children and adults alike find it delicious! It is a fantastic way to sneak powerful nutrition into our bodies.

Gluten-Free Flatbread: This healthy bread stands on its own or pairs beautifully with salads, soups, dips, or as a sandwich base, etc.

Pesto Snacks: Nutritional powerhouse snacks, loaded with cilantro—known for its ability to remove toxins from the body.

Nacho “Cheese” Snacks: The plant-based dip at the center of these snacks will win the hearts (and stomachs) of everyone!

Herbal Sun Teas: Possibly the fastest, easiest, and most cost effective form of nutrition year-round!

Greens with Savory Seed Toppers: Your garden produce and salads will taste even more delightful with these seeds!

The 25th Street Market Restarts in May

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!

An Evening with Carsten Meier, Photographer

Please join us on April 1 for our 2nd event in our new “Authors & Illustrators” series:

Carsten Meier — DAMS

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.

[Please note that the Friends of the North Logan Library reserves the right to use any photograph/video taken at this event for promotional purposes unless the attendee notifies the Friends at PR@FriendsNLL.org in advance of the event.]

“Authors & Illustrators” Series Kick-off a Success

On Friday, March 4, we kicked off our new series “Authors & Illustrators” with a reading by Chadd VanZanten and Russ Beck from their book On Fly-Fishing the Northern Rockies: Essays and Dubious Advice. The two writers read engaging stories about their love for fly-fishing while their friend and well-known fly-tyer Tim King demonstrated the art of tying flies. The audience was able to follow his every move as it was projected onto a large screen.

In addition, there were snacks available and a number of really wonderful raffle items, including 8 flies by Mr. King and fish-themed pottery from Hyrum’s Rasmussen Pottery.

A big thank you goes to Russ, Chadd, and Tim for sharing their stories and skills. And thanks to Barbara Middleton for organizing this series. Please stay posted for further announcements. We are  hoping to dedicate every first Friday of the month to this type of event.


Next month’s speaker is USU photography professor Carsten Meier. He will speak about his longtime project of photographing dams. His recently published book DAM will be available for previewing in the library. (It cannot be checked out until after April 1.)

The Winter Bookmark 2015 Was a Success

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!
