book cover image

If you are interested in quilts and quilting and Black History please join us on Monday February 4th at 7 pm in the Stevenson & Hunt Room of the Central Library.  Garnet Smalley, the organizer of the London International Quilt Festival  will be giving a talk and displaying several quilts from Gabon, Zimbabwe and Kenya. His talk will offer a taste of what will be shown at the Quilt Festival being held here in London in June of this year.
These amazing works of art offer a reflection of the cultures of the various countries from which they come.
Also check out some of the Library's wonderful collection of books on quilts and quilting here, and see what other programs the Library is collaborating on for Black History Month here.
