“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!
