Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – February 2018

Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – February 2018

Library events LogoWe are celebrating Black History Month at the library with a special storytelling event for all ages on February 27 at 6 pm.
Ollis Jon (OJ) Mozon, Jr. loves to tell stories that energize hope, encourage faith, exude love and enlighten minds.  While serving as a Navy chaplain he discovered the joys of storytelling. Over the years he has shared his repertoire of Bible stories, folktales, myths, legends and historical vignettes around the world. Many thanks to the Alpine Library Friends Association for sponsoring this event. And don’t forget to stop by and check out some books by and about our Black writers, artists and heroes!

We’re also starting a new Yu-Gi-Oh! club for teens on Fridays at 3:30–duel with friends, trade cards, learn to believe in the heart of the cards…or just hang out!
