Ever think you might write a novel? Kathleen Horn dreamed of being an author since her early teens, but she had to wait until she was a grandmother to see her first book published. Find out how she did it when this new local author visits Minerva Public Library on Saturday, November 23 from 11:00-1:00. Kathleen’s new book, The Everlasting Kind is finally available for purchase at Off the Beaten Path in Minerva, Paperworks in Carrollton, and on Amazon. You can meet the author and, if you like, purchase a signed copy of her book, during her visit to the library.
Stock up on new puzzles at the Minerva Public Library fall Puzzle Exchange all day on Saturday, November 16. Bring in the puzzles you’ve already done and swap them for some that are new to you. Puzzles for adults and puzzles for kids; puzzles with 100 pieces or puzzles with 1000 or more—bring in all kinds of puzzles to share with other jigsaw enthusiasts.
Interested in easy crafts from natural products? Crafty Thursday is the place to be! Ann Myers, local crafter, will present interesting demonstrations and a hands-on project, Learn how to make salves from common plants and herb-infused oils. Everyone gets to make their own beeswax lip balm to take home, along with recipes, supply lists, and list of sources so you make salves, oils, and lip balms on our own as well. There is no charge for this evening of crafty fun, but you should register in advance by calling the library at 330-868-4101.
