Tuesday Tanglers

Montrose Library is launching a new ongoing program for adults and teens. Every second and fourth Tuesday, starting June 11, come to the library to hang out with fellow tanglers, listen to relaxing music, and practice your “tangling” skills.

What the heck is a tangler? I’m glad you asked. In this context, “tangling” refers to the creation of a Zentangle© — a step-by-step, formalized approach to creating structured designs through the drawing of various patterns. A tangler, therefore, is a person who creates Zentangles.

Come and join the Tuesday Tanglers every 2nd and 4th Tuesday, from 5:30 to 7:00. Listen to soothing music while you tangle your way into a state of relaxation. No prior experience is required and basic informational pamphlets will be available for newbies. Each session will also include two new tangle patterns for you to try, or you can browse through any of the available tangling pattern books for inspiration. Basic supplies will be provided, as well as recommended resources for additional supplies that you can purchase if (when) you find yourself bitten by the tangling bug.

Can’t wait to tangle with you!

Beneath Blue Mesa: The Gunnison River Valley Before Blue Mesa Reservoir

A slide show of the history of the Gunnison River Valley before Blue Mesa Reservoir was completed in 1965. Learn about fishing resorts, ranches, towns, and the narrow gauge railroad that now lie beneath the reservoir as remembered by local residents.

David Primus, a 3rd generation Coloradoan, has lived in Gunnison since 1978, graduating from Western Colorado University in 1981. He has researched the history of the American West throughout his life.
