An author and performing artist since 1991, Christine Kallevig folds paper as she tells stories. Each fold illustrates an action or character, so by the time the story is over, a surprise origami figure is magically created. Fold along, and you'll become origami illustrators, too! For all ages, but children age four and younger must be accompanied by an adult.more info
After a month off, First Thursday kicks off the second half of the year with an eclectic mixture of klezmer, swing, and latin jazz music. Strap on your toe-tappers and get down to the library for this free event!
This and all First Thursdya Events are made possible through the generosity of the Friends of Schlow Centre Region Library.
Have you heard of our local First Thursdays? These monthly celebrations of the arts in downtown State College and on the Penn State campus follow a pattern adopted in a number of cities across America to devote one day a month to the arts. Our First Thursdays were started three years ago by the Friends of Schlow Library Board! Katie O'Toole, program chair of the Friends of Schlow Library, brought together representatives of downtown businesses and Penn State and communty arts groups to create First Thursday State College.
Veronica Winters, Schlow Library December 2008 Gallery Artist, will demonstrate and instruct on drawing manga/fantasy art. Please visit her website!
Pre-registration is required, through the ReferenceQuestions that you ask of library staff that require knowledge of the content of the collection or other resources such as those on the web. Sometimes you are referred to the answer, hence Reference. Reference can also refer to our reference materials that are often encyclopedic books that have many volumes and a concentrated number of facts and/or statistics. These materials usually have an overnight loan period so they are available in the library most of the time. Desk. All are invited!
