Cazenovia Public Library Presents ‘From Brush to Book’

(Cazenovia, NY – July 2012) The ever-popular Jonas Sickler returns to the Cazenovia Public Library Community Room Saturday, July 14, at 3:30 p.m. to present “From Brush to Book.” How do artists create art? And how do they get their work into children’s magazines and books? Join Sickler and enter into the creative process as he shares how he creates his artwork and how he gets it published.

Then don’t miss a beat in heading to St. Peter’s Church on Mill Street to help composer Edward Ruchalski create music at the Loop Station. It will consist of a five-minute sound loop performed and recorded, layer by layer, in real time, by the composer and any interested volunteers. The sound sources will consist of found objects and various instruments that will be recorded into a Boss RC-20 Loop Station. This opportunity at 4:30 p.m. will accompany the reception for the Cazenovia Counterpoint Art Exhibit.

Experiencing the world of “Fairies, Elves, and other WEE FOLK” continues with Fairy Tale: A True Story to be shown in the Library Community Room Friday, July 20, at 6:30 p.m. In this film, two young girls say they have met fairies and have the photos to prove it. Everyone is caught up in the excitement, but are these photos real or just a clever hoax? This film is rated G and runs for 97 minutes. As always, the popcorn is free.

Summer Reading Program Begins

The exciting activities for “Dream Big,” the theme for the 2012 New York State Summer Reading Program, begin at the Cazenovia Public Library Wednesday, July 11, at 1:30 p.m.

All are invited to the Library Community Room for “Beyond Dreams: The Real Science of the Night.” In a 45-minute interactive science show from the Museum of Science & Technology, the different aspects of the night and our relationship to it will be examined.

What does nighttime mean to you? Is it safe or frightening? Why does the sun set? And what do other animals do at night? Young and old alike will love this show!

“Dream Big!” takes center stage Wednesday, July 18, when “Story Laurie” appears in the Library Community Room at 1:30 p.m. A storyteller, who is the embodiment of a modern-day troubadour, Story Laurie serves up some favorite tales and tunes about people and animals who dare to dream big dreams. Laurie is a vibrant, creative performer – a guaranteed delight for the whole family.

Mark your calendar and watch for more details as the Summer Reading Program continues with “Planetarium” July 25, at 10 a.m., “Under the Big Top” July 31 at 10 a.m., “The Night Shift” Aug. 8 at 1:30 p.m. and “Fireflies Under a Full Moon” Aug. 30 at 8 p.m.
