Back by popular demand, the “Paper Dolls Plus” program is coming to the WCPL Local History Center in October! Host JoEllen Culbertson will guide participants in the creation of two paper dolls using the paper piecing technique, along with fashioning a file-folder style card to store the dolls in for safe keeping.“Paper Dolls Plus” will be held in the Harmon Room of the Local History Center. Instead of limiting the experience to one session we are happy to offer two sessions, on Tuesday, October 16 and then on Thursday, October 18.
Bryan, West Annex - Local History Center
Join the WCPL Local History Center crew on Saturday, September 29 for the Second Annual Fountain Grove Cemetery Tour. Take in the stories of some of the area’s most notable and notorious citizens, from saintly missionaries to dastardly scoundrels, charitable citizens to titans of industry, and the barely remembered to unforgettable. Along the way, learn about the architecture and symbolism used on tombstones, and finally answer that question, “Why does great-grandpa’s tombstone look like a tree stump?”
Filmgoers in Williams County will unite with audiences in over 300 cities, spanning six continents, to view and judge the work of the next generation of filmmakers when the 21st Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival screens at the Local History Center of the Williams County Public Library!
