Go Cover 2 Cover with discussion group

Missing your dosage of wonderful literary conversation? The Noble Public Library’s Cover 2 Cover book discussion group gets back together for its next meeting at 1 p.m. on Thursday, July 9. This month’s book title is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline, which tells the story of a young orphan who helps an elderly woman solve a mystery from her past.

The discussion group is for ages 18 and up and meets generally on the second Thursday of the month. There will be optional potluck refreshments available following each month’s discussion.

Get a lesson in an old skill with teen Sewing 101 workshops

“Sewing teaches you so many skills, real life things like cost comparison,” said Cathleen Taylor, Extension Educator with the Pottawatomie County OSU Extension Service.

Gain a new skill at Noble Public Library through a two-day workshop for teens titled “Sewing 101 for Heroes.” The workshop runs at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 8, and Thursday, July 9. Registration is required.

The classes will be taught by representatives from the OSU Extension. Each PLS library will host a two-day class for teens, who will make their own tote bag, pretty much from scratch.

In addition to the leadership of the Extension educators, participants will be assisted by volunteers who are part of the home community education volunteers group, so the work will be as close to 1-on-1 instruction as possible.
