SHEARING DEMON­STRA­TION The li­brary wel­comes all to a demon­stra­tion en­ti­tled, “From Sheep to Sweater” by Tr­ish Ger­hardt on Sun­day, May 1, from 1 to 4 p.m. on the front porch of the li­brary.

••• MAY FUN FOR KIDS All those young­sters ages 2 to 5, with an adult, will want to be in the Chil­dren’s Room with Miss Jenny on Tues­day, May 10, at 10:30 a.m. for para­chute play and games.

The same group will want to be at the li­brary again on Fri­day, May 20, at 10:30 a.m. for fin­ger paint­ing. Have fun fin­ger paint­ing, but be sure your child wears some­thing that can get messy.

••• GAR­DEN­ING BOOKS Now is the time to look over the dis­play of gar­den­ing books you can find in the Main Read­ing Room.

••• MAY BOOK DIS­CUS­SION The Book Dis­cus­sion Group that meets at the Kent Is­land Yacht Club will be talk­ing about J. Ryan Stradal’s novel, “Kitchens of the Great Mid­west” on Thurs­day, May 26, be­gin­ning at 6 p.m. By turns quirky, hi­lar­i­ous, and vividly sen­sory, this is an un­ex­pected mother-daugh­ter story about the bit­ter­sweet na­ture of life — missed op­por­tu­ni­ties and its joy­ful sur­prises. It marks the en­try of a bril­liant new tal­ent.
