    Are you looking for something good to read? Is your list of recommended books so long you just don’t know where to start? If you’re like the rest of us, you tend to read the same authors and styles over and over again. So come to the Hingham Public Library on Saturday February 25th at 11 am to get a few new ideas through our annual discussion of some of the great books of 2016! Peter Thornell, Collection Development Librarian and Readers’ Advisor, will present numerous titles from several different genres of both fiction and non-fiction. Those attending are always welcome to share their thoughts on their own list of “must read” titles. Refreshments will be available. For more information, please visit the Reference Desk, call us at 781-741-1405, x1404, or email thornell@ocln.org.

    February 22, 2017, 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM @ Whiton Room

    Janell Scannell and Lisa Walker are the co-creators of a wonderful independent art program for kids called Pop Up Art. It is perfect for that hard-to-capture upper elementary child. Scannell and Walker bring all the necessary supplies for the selected project and oversee it from beginning to completion, and the kids leave with their own “work of art”! The February class will explore Georgia O’Keefe and focus on collage and scale. O’Keefe was a watercolor painter and is best known for her paintings of flowers. Her images enlarge the flower so that it becomes an abstract image of sinuous curves. We will re-create the look of translucent watercolors by collaging tissue paper pieces onto paper. For children ages 8 to 14. Reservations are necessary and made be made by calling the children’s department at 781-741-1405. ext 1403 beginning on Feb. 01.
