Poetry to the Community

Poetry to the Community aims to bring together artists, children, teenagers and adults to participate in papermaking, screen printing and collage workshops where they will reflect on the interconnection between art and poetry and make artworks inspired by the poems of Steve Luxton, Poet in Residence at the Bibliothèque Lennoxville Library.

 

 

Paper Making Workshop (for kids ages 6-12)

Saturday, June 19th at 10am

Bishop’s University – Molson Fine Arts Building

How many pieces of fabric does it take to make paper? Did you know that you can make pulp with something other than fruit? Do you think the paper should be white only?

Come join us for a papermaking workshop!

The library invites children to take part in a papermaking workshop as part of the Poetry to the Community project. They will be inspired by the poems of Steve Luxton, poet in residence at the Lennoxville Library. They will be able to participate in a collective work while making their own paper that they will take home.

In order to comply with sanitary measures, the number of registrations is limited to 10 people (including the facilitator and accompanying persons). The number of places is therefore limited.

Help seed our seed library!

Just in time for the gardening season, the library is starting a seed library.

The idea is to create a repository of vegetable and flower seeds built on seed donations from the community.

If you have extra seeds from your seed purchases, or seeds that you have saved from your garden from previous years, consider donating them to the library. We will provide you with envelopes and ask you to fill out some basic information about the seeds. These will then be made available at the library to all who wish to use them, with the hope that those who borrow seed will donate seeds in the future.

Stop into the library any time we are open with your seeds.

 

 

 

BOOK CLUBS, in French and English

In English: Wednesday, May 26th at noon

 Click here to join the meeting

In French: no meeting in May or June

On Zoom

Both clubs operate the same way: participants come prepared to share and discuss with the group one or several books they’ve read recently. All are welcome.

The French language “Club de Lecture” meets monthly to discuss what participants have been reading in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. 

Are you an Anglophone looking to brush up your French, or a Francophone looking to practice your English? Both clubs welcome the participation of those looking to connect with literature and conversation in another language.
