Make a Gorgeous Necklace

January 15, 2015


Community Room

Beat those January blahs by bringing your nimble fingers to the Library

to make a bright and colorful necklace.  Let’s have some soothing tea and

play some mood music and chat with friends.  Take home your own work of art to lift your spirits or to present as an unexpected gift for someone.  If a

necklace sounds too ambitious for you, make a key chain.

Local author promotes Faith and Character Building

Come Sat. Dec. 20th from 10:30-Noon
Enjoy snacks & stories as Nick Schneider signs copies & shares from his book.

This book is a series of 10 short stories that are based on a variety of faith-based character building lessons. The stories, while fictional in nature, are based upon some of my personal life experiences or the experiences I have had as a father and grandfather. It is my hope that these lessons can help to encourage parents, grandparents and others to read to their children, grandchildren and others. Then, they are encouraged to talk about the scripture references at the end of each chapter with the youngsters. I hope you are blessed and encouraged by what you read.
