Story Book Walk at Meekins
Come enjoy the great outdoors with an enhanced literacy adventure by reading a picture book outside with your children! What is a Story Book Walk? Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you're directed to the next page in the story.  We have chosen the picture book, “Miss Maple’s Seeds” by Eliza Wheeler. This is a gorgeous picture book which introduces the kind, nature-loving Miss Maple, who celebrates the miracle in each seed. Miss Maple gathers lost seeds that haven’t yet found a place to sprout. She takes them on field trips to explore places to grow. In her cozy maple tree house, she nurtures them; keeping them safe and warm until it’s time for them to find roots of their own, and grow into the magnificent plants they’re destined to become.

Artist Reception

Saturday, Oct. 22, 3-5pm at the Neil Hammer Gallery in the Hawks~Hayden Community Room

"The Latest...", paintings by Williamsburg artist, Jeffrey Gillis, are on exhibit in the Neil Hammer Gallery of the Hawks~Hayden Community Room at Meekins Library. Gillis, who studied art at Southeastern Massachusetts University yet considers himself self-taught, describes his work as "folk paintings". 
"The Latest..." is like walking 
 into a big family party, the people spilling out into the yard. There is vibrancy in the busy scenes, as well as exuberance of color in the quieter paintings, Cam at the Beachand PEI Fox.
