April and May events at Maxwell Memorial Library

Sally's story times will take a short break in May to make room for the Friends of Maxwell Library book sale. Beginning May 11, preschool story time for children ages 3 to 5 will resume at 10:30 a.m. Mondays and Tuesdays. "Stories with Sally" for the under-3 crowd is now also held twice a week, at 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays and 10:30 a.m. Wednesdays. No registration is required for any of our story times, but a parent or guardian must remain with children and participate with them during Stories with Sally.

The annual West Genesee student art exhibit continues with works by West Genesee Senior High School students on display until April 23. West Genesee Middle School will be next, from April 27 until May 7, followed by Camillus Middle School, from May 11 to 28.

The annual juried show of the Camillus Art Association will be held until April 30. Come see if your favorite is the blue ribbon winner!

We are excited to host a new (to us) artist. David "R.C." Oster creates beautifully detailed pen-and-ink drawings of Adirondack buildings and natural wonders. His work will be on exhibit in our gallery for the month of May.

Unraveling Yarns Book Club meets from 10:30 a.m. to noon the second Thursday of each month in our Community Room. All book selections will have a mystery or suspense theme. Bring your knitting, and unravel a different plot each month. Each new title will be kept a mystery until you come pick it up. The group's next meeting will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday May 14. Stop in at Maxwell for a copy of next month's book and a reading guide. Non-knitters are also welcome.

Between the Lines Book Club is currently reading the novel "Garden Spells," by Sarah Addison Allen. The discussion is scheduled from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Monday April 27. The following selection will be "Bee Season," by Myla Goldberg, for discussion from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Monday May 25. Copies of club selections and reading guides are available at the desk. No registration is required for either club, and all are welcome.
