Library Offers Programs for Makers, Readers, Growers

The Jefferson County Library lineup for September includes these services and events:

Kids’ Make-it Station

The Station is available all month for in-person participation at the library, or via take-it kit from the bookmobile. Children can use provided supplies to explore, learn, and create. The focus for September is textured rubbing with the use of crayons to explore unique shapes, patterns, and raised surfaces.

Live Online Book Discussions

Discussions are held on the second Thursday of each month from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. On September 8, readers will discuss The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Sign-up is required and the library will lend copies of the book upon registration. Participants are asked to read the entire book before the scheduled session. To join, email the library at

Live Online Author Talk

Author Talk will feature Simon Winchester on Tuesday, September 20, 11 a.m. to noon. Winchester is a prolific British-American writer, journalist, and adventurer. The conversation will cover many aspects of his work across history, technology, and geology, as well as his personal journey to becoming a best-selling author. See the library website for more details and required registration.

WSU Seed Library

WSU Seed Library will continue to make deliveries of a variety of seeds via the bookmobile at scheduled stops. As patrons watch their plants mature, they set aside a portion of their generated seeds to go back to the seed library for next year’s borrowers. Contact WSU for complete details and schedules.
