Willits Library returns to a Tuesday through Saturday schedule, with a “We’re OPEN” celebration on Friday, December 12th.
At 10am we open with Mr. Mac Smith providing his delightful guitar and vocal performance of songs for kids.
Promptly at 12:15, we will premier our first streamed TED talk: “How Schools Kill Creativity,” presented by Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally respected (and quite funny) speaker. This is a brown paper bag lunch event. You bring lunch, we supply coffee & tea. This 2006 talk lasts for slightly under 20 minutes—just enough time to watch, eat, and return to work on time—or stay to enjoy a conversation about the talk.
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) creates conferences around the globe under the slogan “Ideas Worth Spreading.” TED talks have been viewed online more than one billion times.
From 2-4 pm, we will offer tweens, teens and adults a jewelry crafting event using copper wire and beads. Come make your own earrings, ring or pendant. Supplies are limited and advanced registration is required. Please call the library at 459-5908 to hold your space.
Finally at 7pm, the Friends of the Willits Library are presenting an author talk by Kim Brancroft.
Coffee and tea will be available all day. Refreshments will appear randomly. All events are absolutely FREE.
