The Spiritual Nature of Animals with Karlene Stange, DMV

Author Karlene Stange’s spiritual journey began during her work as an ambulatory veterinarian, driving her pickup truck through southwestern Colorado, attending to animals in need of medical care. She has experienced the challenges, sorrows, and joys of working with creatures great and small, and she feels a powerful kinship with these beautiful beings beyond flesh and fur and feathers.

Early Literacy Night

Families with children pre-school and early elementary aged are invited to join ICL for an early literacy evening. Build your child’s skills with fun literacy activities, crafts and a free book. Dinner will be served. Join us for an evening the whole family can enjoy. Featured book this month is Stone Soup by Marcia Brown.


Older Adults Coffee Klatch

The teens are having so much fun at the library’s teen café and we decided they shouldn’t get to have all the fun. We’re now hosting a coffee time at ICL for older adults who would like a time to socialize, talk, read the paper or play a game. Beginning at 10 am on January 11th we’ll offer coffee and pastries and a time and place to gather. Bring your friends or come alone, visit with old friends or meet new ones. We’ll host this each Thursday in January and February and continue while there is an interest.

A Night With Southwest Musicians

ICL’s Writers’ Group has done it again! They’ve put together an evening of music for us to enjoy before we get too busy with the upcoming festivities. The evening will start off with Songs for the Holidays by the Hideaway Ukulele Society followed by original music by David Quiroz, Grant Andrews and Chris Vandeleur. This event is sure to be a relief from the seasonal hustle and bustle. We hope you’ll join us in supporting our local writers and the Cedar Moon journal. A nominal donation of $5 is requested. Light refreshments will be provided.
