  • On the Friends Art Wall:
    Katherine Soskin

    I have used creativity as an outlet for my health challenges throughout my life. Whether through song, cooking, writing, photographing, poetry, painting, or counseling, I have been very blessed to have teachers in art - and in the art of living - as mentors. I am mostly self- taught in art, however.

    My painting is a reflection of my travels - a palette for others to view the beauty of our world through watercolor, pastel, oil or acrylic. I enjoy sharing this beauty and spirituality with everyone.Being told "it's a miracle you are alive" has given me wonderful purpose. It is a great day when I can assist another in removing the rocks on his or her path to allow that person to grow into the amazing creature they are intended to be.

Who are the Friends?

The Friends are people just like you who want to support the library financially and/or by volunteering. We raise funds for the library's programs, special equipment and services. We volunteer at the book sales and bookstore. We award an annual scholarship to a high school senior who works or volunteers for the library. The Friends host the Art Wall in the main lobby area. Images from this month's artist can be seen above.

The Friends Mission: A membership organization of dedicated volunteers who serve as library advocates, and who plan and implement fundraising efforts to support library programs, collections and special projects.
