Folk-Art Bear Craft
Registration deadline: May 14
Zoom meetup: Thursday, May 27, 7 to 8 p.m.
Learn a new skill or improve your crafting abilities with the Paso Robles City Library’s online craft series! In keeping with our May theme of Strength, this month we are creating a felt bear – a symbol of strength and confidence – and who can’t use more of those qualities? Using hand sewing techniques, embroidery, and quality wool felt, create a realistic folk art bear to remind you of your strength or to give to someone who needs a boost. Space is limited. Registration with a library card is required for each participant to receive craft materials and Zoom meetup information. For ages 16+.
Book Group Reads: Bearskin by James McLaughlin
Zoom meetup: Thursday, May 20, 7 to 8 p.m.
Rice Moore is just beginning to think his troubles are behind him. He’s found a job protecting a remote forest preserve in Virginian Appalachia, where his main responsibilities include tracking wildlife and refurbishing cabins. It’s hard work and totally solitary, perfect to hide away from the Mexican drug cartels he betrayed back in Arizona. But when Rice finds the carcass of a bear killed on the grounds, the quiet solitude he’s so desperately sought is suddenly at risk. More bears are killed on the preserve, and Rice puts into motion a plan that could expose the poachers but risks revealing his own whereabouts to the dangerous people he was running from in the first place. The title is available through the Black Gold Library System and the hoopla platform. Space is limited. Registration is required for each participant to receive ZOOM meetup information. For ages 16+.
