Books & Crafts & Movies, oh my!

Programs at the libraries are starting up again after a late summer hiatus.

The Lebanon Library Book group meets Sept 14 (2nd Wednesday of the month) at 1 pm. The group will select books to read this fall. Come join us! (And if you can't make that time, tell staff you are interested in a book group and leave your name & contact information at the desk.)

The Craft Circle will meet Thursday, September 15, at 1 pm at the Lebanon Library. Crafters can bring their latest project and share it. The featured craft is cross stitch, so someone will be demonstrating that craft for anyone interested in learning it.The Craft Circle meets the 3rd Thursday of the month and observers are welcome.

And a movie is showing frequently at your local library. Stop by and check us out!

On the Morning of September 11, 2001, where were you?

How did you find out about the terrorist attacks?

What do you remember about that day?

How has life changed for you because of 9/11?

September 11 Memory Project

RCPL wants to know the answers to those questions. The library is coordinating a community memory project to commemorate of the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorists attacks. During the month of September, community members are encouraged to share their thoughts, memories and reflections on the tragic events of that day and what they have come to mean.

You can stop by the library in Honaker or Lebanon and we'll provide you with paper to record your thoughts. Poems, sketches, memories are also welcome. A video camera will be also be available if you prefer speak to rather than write. You can also email us at libadmin@russell.lib.va.us. All the memories will be compiled into a book that will be added to the Local History Collection.

September 11th was a pivotal moment in history, a permanent mark in time for many of us. Before 9/11, after 9/11.

Share your thoughts.
