Black Friday at Priestley-Forsyth Memorial Library

Here at Priestley-Forsyth Memorial Library we are celebrating “Black Friday”!  Our Books, DVDs, Audio Books and CDs are already “Half-Off” our shelves and ready to be borrowed.  We also offer “Free” library cards to anyone who doesn’t already have one, if you live within 25 miles of the library.  Best of all, these offers aren’t only offered on Black Friday, they are available ALL year!

Cross Keys Artists and Writers Guild Will Meet December 3, 2015

The Guild will gather at the Library on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. We will be starting the Introductory Session of our 12-week creativity workshop. The course work is based on Julia Cameron’s best selling book The Artist’s Way. We’ll examine Cameron’s concept of the Great Creator. We’ll discuss how The Artist’s Way is essentially a spiritual path, initiated and practiced through creativity. If you find yourself creatively blocked –and I believe that countless artists often are — it is possible that you can learn to create more freely through use of the tools you will become familiar with in this workshop. There will be no Guild meeting on December 15, 2015 due to the Children’s Program Polar Express needing our space. Our next meeting will be on January 5, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. to start with Week 1: Recovering a Sense of Safety. We will look at how people who are frustrated creatively often shadow other artists. We’ll examine core negative beliefs, creative affirmations, and some creative tasks to be done in session and as homework. If you’re serious about your craft and want to move forward in your creativity, this is the workshop for you. Hope to see you there!
