The Sleeping Mat Project
Helping the Homeless, While Recycling!
Did you know recycled grocery bags can create colorful, woven mats for homeless individuals in your community? Through a partnership with Integrate for Good and Angels in Motion, the Indian Valley Public Library is joining the project. Each week community members will join to learn different parts of the project including cutting bags, making loops, making “plarn” (plastic yarn), and weaving the mats on a loom.
Anyone is welcome to join us!
Contact Nicole Husbands at firstname.lastname@example.org for information or with questions.

Play tabletop and card games. All ages are welcome, however, adult supervision is required for players under 12.
Join Darryl Smith as he presents “Linguistics and Literature: Partners in Creativity” on Thursday, May 9, 16, 23 from 7pm – 8:30pm.
In these sessions, attendees will experience the literature of South African peoples, Native Americans, and the elderly and the young. You will enjoy excerpts from such great writers as Arthur C. Clarke, E. E. Cummings, Robert Frost, Ernest Hemingway, Mark Twain, William Faulkner, Bob Dylan and James Baldwin. Our group welcomes young readers as well as us “not so young”. Be prepared to share, to read aloud, to explore myth and morphology, metaphor and etymology.
