Learn the art of Japanese Calligraphy at the Meeteetse Library. Megumi Maymiyamoto (Meg May) will demonstrate and teach the basics and fine points of “shodo”. This is a beautiful art form as well as a means of communication. Join us Thursday, April 4 from 4-6.
Meeteetse 4th and 5th graders are visiting the library and reading their way through the Iditaread Challenge. For every 50 pages read the student gets another dog to move along the race track from Anchorage to Nome. Students are encouraged to read and learn about the race, the dogs, the training and the mushers. It should be a fun “race to the finish”!
The “Two Nations One Reservation” exhibit from ThinkWy (the Wyoming Humanities Council) will be on display at the Meeteetse Branch Library through the month of January. The exhibit introduces the story of the treaties, laws, events and people that shaped the history of the Wind River Indian Reservation (WRIR) in central Wyoming. The mission of Wyoming Humanities is to strengthen Wyoming’s democracy through the humanities. The “Two Nations One Reservation” exhibit kiosks help to fulfill that mission by providing opportunities for better understanding the rich heritage and diverse cultures shaping our state and inspiring conversations by an engaged, educated electorate.
Meeteetse Branch Library will host a Gingerbread Party for kids 8 & up (younger with adult supervision) on Tuesday, Dec. 18 from 4-6.
