“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.” Ernest Hemingway, to a friend, 1950.”  Read A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway and be inspired to share a “moveable feast” of your own in 6 words.  Pick up  a submission form in September at the Ygnacio Valley Library.  With your permission, your “moveable feast” will be added to our Wall of Sharing.
Join us to discover the hidden treasures of Eastern Oregon.  Environmental and conservation campaigner Teri Shore will lead us on a photographic journey to the magnificent Wallowa Mountains, the spectacular painted rocks of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, and the eerie expanse of the Alvord Desert at the foot of the towering Steens range. Few Californians venture into these far-flung and little-traveled reaches of Eastern Oregon. You might find yourself all alone on a back road watching wild horses from your car window or camping under celestial skies. And yes, it will probably rain! That’s why so many gorgeous wildflowers stop you in your tracks. 
Registration begins 9/11/2018 at 10:00 AM

For children in grades 1-5. Reading with animals is a great way for children who are struggling with reading to improve their skills. Children read aloud for 20 minutes to a dog from ARF’s Pet Hug Pack in a relaxed, non-judgmental environment. Sessions begin at 3:30 & 4:00. Register online beginning two weeks in advance. Parents and other family members are asked to wait elsewhere in the library while the reader gets one on one time with their Pet Hug Pack dog.
