Featured Artist for May
Ashanti is an artist based in the San Juan Islands with a focus in collage work. What she loves most about collaging is that at its very core it’s a process of transmutation. The juxtaposition of concepts with cultural emblems and striking patterning and textures create a completely new sensory experience. Ashanti’s goal is to create a depiction of a multifaceted universe but in the presentation of a very precise patterning on the canvas. Every cut out ties in with the next to create a symbiotic relationship and flow into a process of storytelling.

Board Games @ the Library!
Looking for things to do at home this winter? We are excited to announce our expanded and updated board game collection!
Board games have made a big comeback with modern themes designed to engage players in strategy and problem-solving, and party games to keep you laughing. Playing games serves as an antidote to pandemic-induced screen time overload, helps build family connections, creates fond memories for children, and can reduce stress and increase cognitive function.
The collection includes strategy, hobby, party, cooperative, and classic games for all ages, including several new one- and two-player games, to enliven your stay-at-home winter nights. We are excited to offer patrons the opportunity to borrow these games.
Click here to see the collection and place holds for pickup during curbside hours. Check back as new games are added this month! Game on!
