Sometimes writing a poem can seem daunting...like a school assignment. On this Poetry Friday, we decided to celebrate the effort it takes to create and, maybe, just maybe find a bit of humor in all of it:
Assignment: Write a Poem
Need more words.
Think on it
Need less words.
Try a quatrain
That hurts my brain
Need less rhyme.
Free flowing, free verse
It can’t get any worse
Need more rhyme.
A limerick sounds fun

Love jewelry or have a friend who does? Wanna learn how to make wire jewelry? Join Kelley and Alexis on Thursday, October 9 at 4:00 PM for Make It Your Way at Richland Library Northeast. We'll teach you how to wrap beads and make a pair of earrings or a ring. All materials (and know-how) are provided.
Not interested in this workshop? We've got other programs coming up -- learn to make keepsake boxes from Altoid tins, paper beads, and Ottoman knots.
Check out these new arrivals for teens, or drop by any Richland Library location for more options!
Most people might assume that great art should be about something--an animal, a self-portrait or a landscape. Don't discount designs, abstracts or expressionism. Take a look at this visually impacting piece created by Heriot Sadler. "Splat" draws you in and makes you take a longer look.
Art is about line, shape, space, texture and much more. Dare yourself to try something different. Dream up a doodle or go crazy with patterns. Allow yourself to make a Beautiful Oops! and see what happens.
