Escape the Ordinary @ Your Library YOUTH SERVICES

Escape the Ordinary: TRAINS!
Saturday, July 11
10:30 am - 2 pm

Join us for a fun family event about North Carolina trains and railroads! Dr. Scott Huffard, History Professor at Lees-McRae College, will tell us about a railroad that cost lives to build and a train that derailed near Statesville. What happened?!?

A sandwich lunch and guided tour of Black Cat Station are included next for everyone who signs up. (You provide transportation to the station.) Come for giveaways and a drawing for a Black Cat Station T-shirt! Call 838-2818 ext. 232 to register for lunch and the tour!

The beautiful image above is from the new mural painted up from the intersection of C Street and 9th Street in North Wilkesboro.


On Display: Art from Student Art Camp
Students from the Wilkes Art Gallery Summer Camp are sharing their talents at the Library! Beautiful artwork from Isabella, Calvin, David O., Carson, Eli, Madison, Adrienne, Haley, and Katlin are on display in the Friends of the Library Meeting Room downstairs. Come see!


Check the calendar for lots of great programs, and don't get behind on the FUN of Summer Reading!
