Library News

The Literary Classics Online Book Club (TLCOBC): This online book club will be specially tailored for people who enjoy reading and talking about classic literature. Each year, we will select six classic books to read and discuss.  The titles are available through OneClick Digital, the library's ebook lending sources. For more information, visit: http://tlcobc.wordpress.com/  

Art @ the Library

     In May, the Carteret County Public Library will exhibit the fiber art of Willi Foster. Willi Foster grew up in Holland and was thoroughly schooled in fiber and fabric crafting by her very talented mother. She learned functional and decorative ways to knit, crochet, sew, embroider, hook rugs, and fabricate clothes. The framed pieces she will display are cross stitched impressions of Frank Lloyd Wright windows and of birds she has seen or photographed. The display case will feature the beautiful art glass of Charlotte’s Daughters.
