Come & See the Story Quilts Made by Refugees in Idaho

Throughout the month of November, the North Logan Library will be hosting an exhibit by Artisans for Hope and the Idaho Commission on the Arts, titled THIS IS MY HOME NOW: NARRATIVE TEXTILES FROM IDAHO NEWCOMERS.

A collection of narratives and accompanying story quilts tells the stories of refugees who made Boise home after living through catastrophic times in their native countries.

Unfortunately, most of the actual quilts were destroyed in a fire. However, there are 12 quilts in the exhibit, plus some photographs of the quilts. They are all accompanied by the artisans’ history, detailing why and how they came to Idaho as refugees. Volunteers from Artisans For Hope worked with the refugees on how to express the essence of their stories in small story cloths. Their stories are horrific, their art beautiful.

The exhibit is distributed throughout the library.

You can find out more about this project here: http://www.artisansforhope.org/special-projects/

2 artisans will be coming to Logan for a number of events. Among them, there will be 2 community events that are free and open to the public:

  1. Friday, November 10, 10 a.m. at MY GIRLFRIEND’S QUILT SHOPPE (1115 N 200 E, Logan). This event will focus on how to tell your story by making story cloths.
  2. Friday, November 10, 7 p.m. at Cache Refugee and Immigrant Connection (CRIC) (429 N Main, Logan). This event will focus on the refugees’ lives, their stories, how they ended up in Idaho, how the support from Artisans for Hope helped overcome trauma and facilitate communication between different cultures.

Library and Children’s Discovery Center Survey

The City of North Logan

is excited to announce that after several years of planning, the city is considering building a new state-of-the-art Community Center that will host the new North Logan Library and a Children’s Discovery Center (Children’s Museum) in the heart of the City Center (near 2150 N 300 E). This Community Center will primarily be paid for with the existing Library resources and generous citizen donations. The Community Center will be located adjacent to a relatively large park space. This area will be the center for daily, weekly, monthly, and annual major events and programming that will tie the community together. With this announcement, we would like to involve the citizens of the community in the planning process. In order to help steer the City in the right direction, we would like to encourage you to fill out the following survey. Your input will help determine the types of programs and features that will be located in the Library/Children’s Discovery Center.
