Crafternoon

Craftivism is using creativity to improve the world.  The library’s Crafternoon club practices craftivism by crocheting and knitting items for charity.  Crafters have made blankets for shelter animals, blankets for abused children, and hats for babies in need.  This fall we begin scarves, hats, and afghans for the homeless.  All ability levels are welcome, and supplies are provided.  Feel free to bring your own personal project to work on as well and enjoy the companionship of other crafters.

Donations of acrylic worsted yarn are always needed!

Crafternoon meets on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Wednesdays every month, from 2:30 – 4:30, in the Montrose Library Meeting Room.  For more information, please call Carla or Tania at 249-9656.

Book Club: Hillbilly Elegy

Join us!  This is a new date and time starting February 2018.  The Book Club will meet on the first Saturday of the month at 9:00 a.m. in the meeting room at the Library. These books were chosen at the group’s meeting in August 2017. For more information, call Tania Hajjar at 970/249-9656 (ext. 3).

The selection for October 2018 is Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance, presented by Jerry Harvey.

From a former Marine and Yale Law School Graduate, a poignant account of growing up in a poor Appalachian town, that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class.  Part memoir, part historical and social analysis, J. D. Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy is a fascinating consideration of class, culture, and the American dream.Vance’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love.” They got married and moved north from Kentucky to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. Their grandchild (the author) graduated from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of their success in achieving upward mobility for their family. But Vance cautions that is only the short version. The slightly longer version is that his grandparents, aunt, uncle, and mother struggled to varying degrees with the demands of their new middle class life and they, and Vance himself, still carry around the demons of their chaotic family history.  Delving into his own personal story and drawing on a wide array of sociological studies, Vance takes us deep into working class life in the Appalachian region. This demographic of our country has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, and Vance provides a searching and clear-eyed attempt to understand when and how “hillbillies” lost faith in any hope of upward mobility, and in opportunities to come.  At times funny, disturbing, and deeply moving, this is a family history that is also a troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large portion of this country. -goodreads.com
