Farms Branch

Special Featured Events

January Art: Kaleidoscope Photography Group
Showing: January 3-30
Two members of the group, Carol Horvitz and Diana Ronell will exhibit contemporary photographs in the lecture hall this month. Each artist seeks to express and share the beauty of a scene rather than address deep or disturbing questions. They strive to have viewers experience pleasure in seeing. This lovely exhibit presents a unique way to welcome in the New Year.

Knitting for Charity
We are inviting all handcrafters to knit or crochet a warm winter for a child or adult in need. Items can be dropped off at the Beverly Farms Library anytime, through January. The items will be donated to Beverly Bootstraps and will be given away to needy adults and children. All donations should be new items.
