Knitting For a Cause Community Project

Join us in loom knitting hats and scarves for The Van and those in need through January 31. We'll supply all the necessary materials, and you'll find tutorials on the Lamanlibrary YouTube channel. If you'd rather use straight knitting needles, we have Creativebug tutorials to help your out there as well. "If you have questions or would like sociallydistanced help getting started, come by Main Branch, and we'll be happy to assist," said Shelbie Reed, Main Branch Adult Services Programming Coordinator.

Why Buy When You Can Borrow?

We recently expanded our Library of Things, upstairs at the Main Branch, to include Ozobots, Sphero SPRK+, and Sphero Ollie programmable robots, coding games, and WeDo 2.0 LEGO. We also offer air fryers, crock pots, cookie cutters, cake pans, and cake decorating kits. You'll find other types of kits, including, those for jewelry making, various tools, power drills, knitting looms, glue guns, and electric scissors for cardboard cutting projects. There are also telescopes and microscopes (located in the Children's Department).

Argenta Branch Library presents Shine

“Shine is a gathering of Arkansas contemporary artists who are providing a look into the creativity and processes of individuals in this present time," according to Matthew Castellano, a Little Rock multimedia artist whose work includes painting, printmaking, and 3D.

He, along with Karina Labrada, a painter, graphic designer and illustrator placing emphasis on acrylics and realism in Greenwood and Little Rock's Trenton Meeks and Kai Denton make up the Six Bridges Watercolor Group. Trenton Meeks is a fine art photographer focusing on surrealism, and Kai Denton utilizes stylized watercolor illustrations.
