The enthusiastic artists displayed in this exhibition come from all over central and north central Massachusetts. Preschoolers through 6th graders have been exploring the elements of art - line, shape, form, color, space and through a variety of media and subjects. Engaging creativity with learned techniques, the artists have created plaster masks, ceramic cups, linoleum prints, acrylic paintings, and more while experiencing how art plays a part in everyday life, both today and in the past, and provides an avenue of self-discovery.
Gardner residents with a Library card in good standing can borrow an Orion StarBlast telescope to view the night sky! This telescope was donated by Kevin and Nancy Boucher and will be maintained by the Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. as part of their Adopt-a-Library Program.
View the Telescope Borrowing Policy and User Agreement here.
In May the Book Group will be reading Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult. Abandoned by a grief-stricken father and scientist mother who disappeared under mysterious circumstances, thirteen-year-old Jenna Metcalf approaches a disgraced psychic and a jaded detective in the hopes of finding answers.
New members welcome.
Copies of the book are available at the Main Circulation Desk.
