Artists Wanted

Goshen County Library is seeking works from local artists to display in our library. We think this is a great way to celebrate the talent of Goshen County as well as enriching our library with the beauty of creativity.

 

Art content must be appropriate for viewers of all ages. Artists of any age are welcome to display works. Here is a copy of the contract you will be asked to sign in order to display works. We will have physical copies available in the library.

Calling Local Creators

Up to once a month we try to call in adult artists, poets, and authors to teach the kids about what they do, and how they do it.

 

If you'd like to teach youths between the ages of 13-18 something new please contact Helen the librarian at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

KIDS IN THE LIBRARY

Story times- Tuesday mornings 10:15-10:45

Each Tuesday morning a staff member will present a variety of stories and crafts for preschoolers. This story time is geared towards 3-5 year olds capable of participating independently of their adult caregivers. Caregivers are welcome to join in until the child is comfortable.

 Charcoal and Quill Guild- Thursdays 4-5pm

Everyone 13-18 years of age who hasn't yet graduated high school is welcome to attend. Charcoal and Quill Guild is a collection of teens who are enthusiastic about art, writing, poetry, and other assorted media. Teens who are looking to better themselves through the support of their peers. We usually drink tea, have cookies, do a small art project as a group, and display works in the library. Sharing is not mandatory but encouraged.
