The library will be celebrating “The Book in All Its Lives” in the month of of March.  The library will host a reception for NH illustrators on March 9, 2-4pm.  The library has asked us to partner with them in creating arrangements based on the interpretation of a book.  This is a fun opportunity to create a flower arrangement of one’s choice.  Members that will be participating in this endeavor include:  Sue Spiess, Diane Merrithew, Joan Poltack, Crystal Chen, Dawn Burke, Becky Stoughton, Marti Warren, Julie Livingston, Ann Logan, Mary Salmon, and Trese Gilligan.  If you will be participating, please let Trese Gilligan know what book you are selecting by Friday, February 21.  Arrangements should be brought to the library Friday, March 7 for display.  Below is a list of some of the NH illustrators featured.  You can explore their books to find one that inspires you or pick any book of your choosing.  Thanks for your help!
