Adult summer reading program at Chipley Library

submitted by Gweneth Collins

Thursday afternoons around 4PM at the Washington County Library in Chipley, adults are “exercising their minds”.

On July 7th the activity was Paper Crafts with Phillip Gilmore of Phillip Gilmore Interior Design. Phillip shared easy and creative ways to recycle and up-cycle old books into beautiful designs for the home or gifts. The group began by transforming plain glass containers and wine glasses into votive candle lanterns, and then experimented with the art of folding book pages.

The Adult Summer Read Program will present two movies in July at 4 PM – “Revenant” on July 14th and “The Walk” on July 21st. Both movies are free and include popcorn and drinks.

On July 28th Judy Corbus of the UF/IFAS County Extension Office will present a program on Nutrition and Food Safety.

Library Director Renee Rountree stated, “We are so happy to offer this type of program to our community and look forward to offering more and different programs in the future. This week, in addition to adult Paper Crafts program, the library also sponsored Tampa Taiko: Traditional Japanese Drumming with the younger crowd in mind.”

Drop by your library at 1444 Jackson Avenue (West Hwy. 90) in Chipley and exercise your mind! Chipley Library hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 AM until 6 PM, and Fridays from 9 AM until 1 PM.
