Upcoming Events

An Introduction to Watercolor

This summer the library is offering an exciting adult program - Introduction to Watercolor presented by Georgia Shaw. Over the course of summer, members will learn the many facets of watercolor. Teaching, demonstration and hands-on practice will all be a part of the learning experience. Becoming familiar with the art materials will allow artists to learn how the paint and brush move together and blend. The class will practice techniques that are simple and give watercolor paintings depth, texture and interest no matter what kind of landscape is desired. The art class will be 12 weeks long taking place on Wednesdays from 1pm to 4pm. The class starts on Wednesday, June 8 and ends on Wednesday, August 24. Space is limited and registration is required so call the library at 608-254-2146 or e-mail us at staff@dellslibrary.org to get on the list. Participants must be 18 or older and all supplies are provided.

May Book Discussion

For the month of May, we will be reading and discussing The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett by Annie Lyons. Eudora Honeysett is done with this noisy, moronic world—all of it. She has witnessed the indignities and suffering of old age and has lived a full life. At eighty-five, she isn’t going to leave things to chance. Her end will be on her terms. With one call to a clinic in Switzerland, a plan is set in motion.  However, a unique friendship develops between Eudora, her neighbor, and a 10 year old girl named Rose. Eudora realizes she must come to terms with what lies ahead, but now that her joy for life has been rekindled, how can she say goodbye?  We will discuss this book twice in the month of May: Monday, May 23 at 5:30 pm and Wednesday, May 25 at 1:30 pm. Everyone is welcome!
