The Library’s writ­ing work­shop, Write Local, meets Friday, August 5 & 19, from 10–11:30 a.m. on Zoom.

We meet on Zoom because man­u­scripts can be eas­i­ly screen-shared, and out-of-town and out-of-state vis­i­tors can attend. For more infor­ma­tion or to receive a Zoom invi­ta­tion, con­tact Adult Services Librarian, John Maruskin, 859−744−5661, ext. 110; john.clarkbooks@gmail.com.

The Library’s dis­cus­sion group, Meeting of Minds, meets Tuesday, August 30, at 6 p.m. on the Library’s front lawn (unless it rains, and then we meet on Zoom). Please bring your own lawn chair or blan­ket for the lawn sessions. 

Conversations at Meeting of Minds range.  We usu­al­ly do not start with a set top­ic.  A top­ic aris­es from ini­tial friend­ly kib­itz­ing and we fol­low the dis­cus­sion.  We’re friends and neigh­bors exam­in­ing events and issues of the day.  We dis­cuss, we don’t argue.  All opin­ions, per­spec­tives, par­ties, and per­sua­sions are wel­come.  That’s how we learn to under­stand each other.

Shadowbox Scherenschnitte of Stephanie Adams on Exhibit in the Library Reference Reading Area during September

Clark County res­i­dent, Stephanie Adams, cre­ates extra­or­di­nary pic­tures using scis­sors, thin paper, and light.  She draws scenes and then cuts them out twice with scis­sors.  She lay­ers the two rep­re­sen­ta­tions so that they are slight­ly mis­matched and mounts them in a frame with no back.  When light pass­es through the sheets of paper, a shad­ow­box effect is cre­at­ed.  The results are won­der­ful. Not only because of the effects of light and shad­ow, but pri­mar­i­ly because Stephanie is such a pre­cise free­hand artist. 

The library has nev­er shown art­work like this.  It is a tru­ly unique view­ing expe­ri­ence and you’ll be delight­ed by the effects sun­light creates.

Stephanie came to the library to get some doc­u­ments at the ref­er­ence desk and as soon as she saw after­noon sun­light stream­ing through the ref­er­ence read­ing area win­dows, she knew she want­ed to show her work here.

We are glad the light was right.  When you vis­it the library in September, make sure to stop by and see her pictures.
