Paper Crown Workshop for Kids

           It’s time to take off our winter hats, and time to put on a
crown!  If you’ve enjoyed the wild and
wonderful hats in our children’s room, then join us and the artist who made
them, Beth Gorski, for a crown making workshop for kids! We will provide materials
to decorate your crown, but feel free to bring in anything that you’d like to
use to make the perfect crown!

Masks will be required.

Beth Gorski has had an interest in
costumes and costume creation for most of her life. She has studied art,
dancing, and theater.  Once she got
started on crowns and hats, she couldn’t stop!  Her beautiful crowns and hats have been on
display here in the Children’s Room of the library, and we’ve been thrilled by
how many people enjoyed them.   These
colorful hats and crowns are full of color, movement and fun, and we hope that
you’ll join us to create one of your own! 
Join us on May 18th, from 4-5:30. Space is limited, and you
can reserve your spot using our online calendar starting on May 4th. We hope to
see you there!

Historical Maps of Falmouth

Maps provide the key to understanding the history of Falmouth and its people.  David Farnham of the Falmouth Historical Society will provide an overview of the historical maps used by the Society’s volunteers when responding to questions from community.  One of these maps, the Proprietors Map, was held at the Library for many years. David will highlight the features making these maps special for people interested in Falmouth and share where the maps can be found.
