April/May Artists-Handweavers

NOBO (North of Boston) Handweavers evolved from a spirited collection of fiber artists who gathered for the first time in April of 2008 to simply talk about weaving and see what the outcome would be. Now celebrating its sixth year, NOBO will commemorate the group’s continuing fellowship by displaying handwovens on loan from its members at the Georgetown Peabody Library during the months of April and May. From historical to present day techniques, from natural to man-made fibers, from hand-held looms to room-sized looms, from beginner to seasoned weavers, the display will
illustrate the broad range of interests and skill levels of its members.

Library Snapshot Day – Friday, April 11

snapmass_cropDuring the week of April 7-12, 2014, Massachusetts libraries will join others across the nation to provide a snapshot of what happens in a day in the life of libraries. How many books are checked out? How many people receive help finding a job? Doing their taxes? Doing their homework? During Snapshot Day, libraries will collect data and photos that can help demonstrate the value of libraries and raise public awareness that libraries are busier than ever.

On Friday, April 11, Georgetown Library will be participating in Library Snapshot Day. If you are in the library that day, be on the lookout for a librarian with a camera! If you have any questions, please visit: SnapMass for more information or contact the library. Stay tuned for more details!
