Artful Sundays @ the Library

 There are two opportunities for exploring art this month at Candor Free Library.

Sunday, February 16 ~ ArtSplash! happens from 1-3 pm. The medium: collage. Participants can choose to make three mini-collages: a tissue paper collage, something inspired by architecture, and a freestyle. Johanna will bring lots of fun collage papers, and people can make their own pattern papers for use in collages. The class is a  hands-on art exploration with gentle guidance. Emerging artists from 8 to 108 are welcome to come, though children younger than 12 need to be accompanied by an adult.  The class is free and materials are provided. Space is limited to 15 participants, so please call 659-7375 to register.

 Sunday, February 23 ~ Painting with Sandy for Adults begins at 1:30 pm. If you've been wanting to splash paint on canvas, this class is for you. The theme is "deer on a snowy night". There is a $15 fee to cover materials (canvas and acrylic paints). Space is limited to 15, so call the library at 607-659-7258 to register.

Cabin Fever Write-ins at the Library

Winter write-ins return. Cabin Fever Writing Month ~ CaFeWriMo ~ starts this week!

This is Candor's "gosh, we were too busy preparing for Thanksgiving" answer to NaNoWriMo. So - if you are looking for some writing companionship, here's your chance.

The Wednesday write-ins are free and provide a perfect opportunity to work on your novel, short stories, poems, or children’s books in the company of other writers. Bring your coffee, your laptop, your pencils and spiral-bound notebooks. Chocolate will be provided.

CaFeWriMo kicks off on Wednesday, January 29, at 10 a.m. with local author Carol Henry and some of the Write Now writers. Come ready to write and with an idea of what you hope to achieve over the month.

Writers are always welcome to hang out and write at the library any time it’s open. But during CaFeWriMo, the back table will be reserved for group writing at these times:

January 29, 10 a.m. – noon
February 5, 2 – 4 p.m.
February 12, 10 a.m. – noon
February 19, 2 – 4 p.m.
February 26, 10 a.m. – noon
March 4, 2 – 4 p.m.

If the weather is bad, we won’t meet. To register, and for more information, contact Carol Henry at 607-659-7661 or

January @ the Library

Happy New Year!

Now that the holidays are over, Story Hour will be happening, as will Lego Club.

Check our "happenings" column for upcoming events. There's an ArtSplash class on Sunday the 19th, and there will probably be a Painting with Sandy class. Heidi Gill says she plans to hold another Spanish class (and they are fun!) and there's a library board of trustees meeting on the 8th that's open to all.
