This Land is Your Land: Teen Writing Workshop
4 Part workshop- 4 Saturdays January 28th, February 4th, February 11th and February 18th 2 pm to 4 pm

In a world where analysis and left-brain thinking dominates, this creative writing workshop gently guides in the creation of a deeper, more imaginative universe. Where else can you create your own landscape and those who live in it? This workshop supports self-expression and enhances a new way of thinking in today’s hectic pace. As Tramp once said in “Lady and the Tramp:” There’s a big hunk of world down there with no fences around it…..And it’s all ours for the taking…..All ours.” This is exactly the spirit you will find in this fun-filled creative writing workshop presented by Real Simple Soul and Sherrie LeuVay.

Program for All Ages
Birdie for Books! –Mini Golf @ Fredricksen Library Saturday, February 25 from 10 am to 6 pm

Save the Date! Our 3rd Annual Birdie for Books fundraiser is back again by popular demand! Don’t miss the chance to play 18 holes of miniature golf INSIDE the library and raise money for Fredricksen at the same time. Last year over 400 golfers came to Fredricksen to play our challenging course that meandered throughout both floors of the library, helping us to raise almost $10,000! The course includes sand traps, hazards, menacing greens, and other decorations designed by local high schools students. Our 19th Hole CafĂ© will once again be filled with wonderful treats, raffle prizes and food. Last year’s prizes included pool memberships, golf outings, toys, and gift baskets. Don’t miss this fun filled day for the whole family! Hole, Tee and Fairway Sponsorships are available for businesses, organizations and families to support Fredricksen. The library will be open for this unique Mini-Golf fundraiser, but closed for regular library business on Saturday, February 25th. For more information call the Development Office at (717) 761-3900 ext. 244.
