Centre County Reads 2017 Kickoff

1:00pm to 4:00pm

Celebrate Under a Painted Sky with us at this all-ages event.

Join Centre County Library & Historical Museum and the Bellefonte Art Museum for a Centre County Reads kick-off event to celebrate Stacey Lee’s Under a Painted Sky. Beginning at 1:30pm and continued every half hour, enjoy cowboy stories and poetry performances at the Bellefonte Art Museum. While you’re there, enjoy food of the place and period: trail snacks and “hard tack” shortbread, as well as many other treats.

Also at the Bellefonte Art Museum, take a tour of the Underground Railroad exhibit, help us piece together our large puzzle and join in on a continuous poker game just for fun! Use our dress-up trunk full of hats, chaps, cowboy vests and sheriff badges to create a period effect

Meander over to Centre County Library’s Historical Museum to learn about your Chinese Zodiac sign and warm up with tea and fortune cookies. At 2:30pm, Miss Laura will host a Chinese Zodiac themed storytime for children. At 3pm, join us for a ukulele jam session and learn some cowboy songs! First come, first served for ukes on hand, or bring your own if you have one!
