BOOK-GIVING TREE AND OTHER GIFT IDEAS Friends of the Talkeetna Library have just the gift for the person that has everything. Purchase a book from our book-giving tree for the library in the name of the person you choose. We will purchase the book and add a book plate that lists the name and the donor. The Friends of the Library also have journals and book bags available for purchase.
STRONG WOMEN (and Men): The Strong Women Strength Training Program is held twice a week as a group. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 am. This program is aimed at Women and Men 40 and older who wish to improve their strength, flexibility and balance. The group meets for 30-45 minuets, and the library is also available for individual "workouts" during the week. If you would like to workout outside the usual group times please give the library a call to ensure the multipurpose room is available. There is no charge for this program. Mats and weights are available to use in the library.
SEWING and QUILTING CIRCLE: The local sewing and quilting circle meets the third Tuesday of every month from 11 am to 4 pm. Work will continue on comfort quilts (quilts for the community), making blocks for a sample quilt as well as continuing individual projects. As always we share ideas, tea, laughter and fabric stashes. Sometimes, someone brings lunch. All are welcome.
CHILDRENS' LITERARY TRAIL: The Friends of the Talkeetna Library have completed the Children’s Literary Trail Project. The approximately 1/4 mile trail now has 10 places to stop and read a page or three from a children’s book. The books will be changed out frequently until winter. Thanks to the Mat-Su Trail Crew who brush cut the trail for you. This project was made possible through a grant by Jessica Stevens Foundation, an affiliate of the Alaska Community Foundation.
