Our AUTHORS & ILLUSTRATORS SERIES WILL CONTINUE THIS FALL:
September 22, 2017: Jenni James
October 27, 2017: Josi Kilpack
November 17, 2017: Gregg Luke
We will post details as they become available. Stay tuned!
As part of our Authors & Illustrators event, the Friends of the North Logan Library are hosting Kevin Hawkes, illustrator of IMAGINE THAT!—Random House’s new book, to be released this September—explaining many fascinating details about Dr. Seuss. Local Seuss fans will get a sneak peek at the book and discover behind-the-scenes insights.
Hawkes, and author Judy Sierra, were selected by Random House and the Geisel family to create a kid-friendly exploration of the early career of Dr. Seuss (a.k.a. Ted Geisel). They captured the familiar bouncy rhythm and colorful art associated with the Seuss books to reveal little-known facts about Dr. Seuss and his creative talents. Hawkes, whose parents reside in North Logan, Utah, will talk about his illustrating experience and share interesting tidbits from the book, as well as demonstrate how he navigates the process of creating his characters. As a bonus, Hawkes will also share another of his illustrated books coming out in August, Dogosaurus Rex.
This evening will be a hit with all ages. And it is FREE!
Everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite hat, enjoy the coloring table and come and celebrate at the Library on July 17 at 7 p.m.
We Need You! The Friends of the North Logan Library will be electing new 2017 board members on February 13th – 6 pm at the Library.
Due to unanticipated events, we have openings for the offices of President Elect and Treasurer, and we encourage you to submit your notice of interest today (click here for job descriptions). The present election ballot is as follows:
President – Winona Perry
President Elect – open
Secretary – Barbara Middleton
Treasurer – open
Officers will be elected by individuals who are current (2017) Friends of the North Logan Library. Nominations can be made from the floor on the night of the vote, but all nominees must be present and agree to accept the nomination.
We are looking for volunteers who would like to help with book sorting and with book sales.
To start with, we are urgently looking for volunteers who are willing to rescue books from being shredded.
Once that’s done, we need hands to help sort the rescued books into categories for sales.
Then we will need folks who can help with the sales themselves. We are planning several for the coming year, the first one as soon as right around Valentine’s Day. So those books need to be rescued and sorted NOW!
If you are interested in any of these activities, which will be ongoing for the year, please sign up at JustServe.org. Put in our zip code (84341) and look for the Friends of the NLL logo. You will be able to choose from the various tasks and within those tasks various dates and time slots are available. Sign up for the time that’s convenient for you. Then we get notified that you have signed up. The site keeps track of volunteers for each project and we can send relevant group or individual emails from there.
If you have any questions about this project, please get in touch with our President, Winona Perry.
Have you enjoyed this year’s 25th Street Market and the various entertainments we offered outdoors at the library, such as BIKES AND BOARDS, UP IN THE AIR, GET MOVIN’, and CULTUREFEST? Maybe you’ve attended one of our AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR evenings and you are hoping that we will continue these and other interesting programs at no cost to the community.
