Not Your Mother's Book Club
Monday, May 24th
5:30 pm
Discussion to be held in-person at the library

Our May selection is The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse.

About the book:

You won't want to leave. . . until you can't.

Half-hidden by forest and overshadowed by threatening peaks, Le Sommet has always been a sinister place. Long plagued by troubling rumors, the former abandoned sanatorium has since been renovated into a five-star minimalist hotel.

An imposing, isolated getaway spot high up in the Swiss Alps is the last place Elin Warner wants to be. But Elin's taken time off from her job as a detective, so when her estranged brother, Isaac, and his fiancée, Laure, invite her to celebrate their engagement at the hotel, Elin really has no reason not to accept.

Arriving in the midst of a threatening storm, Elin immediately feels on edge--there's something about the hotel that makes her nervous. And when they wake the following morning to discover Laure is missing, Elin must trust her instincts if they hope to find her. With the storm closing off all access to the hotel, the longer Laure stays missing, the more the remaining guests start to panic.

Elin is under pressure to find Laure, but no one has realized yet that another woman has gone missing. And she's the only one who could have warned them just how much danger they are all in. . .

A Reese Witherspoon's Book Club pick.

A limited number of books are available while supplies last at the library's front desk. For curbside pickup, call the Big Piney Library at (307) 276-3515 to reserve a copy. This book club welcomes new participants at any time.

The book is also available for download from OverDrive in ebook format and eaudiobook format.

The book discussion will take place in-house at the Big Piney Library.

Decades of Fun: Monthly craft projects
Pick up a project bag at the beginning of each month

Our fun monthly program Decades of Fun celebrates the creativity that came out of each decade in the last 100 years. At the beginning of each month you can pick up a project bag and create a decade-inspired craft from the contents.

Craft materials and project guidelines are included in each project bag. After completing your craft, feel free to post a picture of your creation on the Big Piney Library Facebook page to be entered in a monthly prize drawing. Patrons completing and posting pics each month for an entire century of crafts will be entered in a Grand Prize drawing. Project bags will be limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis at the beginning of each month. Patrons should post pics by the last day of each month in order to be entered in monthly drawings and to qualify for the Grand Prize drawing at the end. Good luck and have fun!

Here's a peek at what we'll be creating this year:

September 1920s Giant Paper Flowers
October 1930s Embroidered Flour Sack Dish Towels
November 1940s Clothespin Dolls
December 1950s Weaving Loom Pot Holders
January 1960s Tie Dyed Socks

March 1980s Charm Bracelets
April 1990s Beaded Keychains
May 2000s Sand Art
June 2010s Tin Can Planters

Projects are subject to change. Bags are available the 1st of each month.

Creative Aging Survey: What free, professionally taught art classes would you like to see offered at the library?

✓ Woodworking
✓ Ceramics
✓ Photography
✓ Music
✓ Acting
✓ Dance/movement

Which art classes would you like to see offered at the library?

Wyoming, like much of the country, has a growing community of aging adults. Studies show that many of the health problems associated with aging can be better managed by engaging in the arts, and we'd like to know how to best serve our older population here in Sublette County in that way.

Through a partnership with Wyoming Arts Council, the Wyoming State Library and Lifetime Arts, we have the opportunity to offer a series of free, professionally taught, instructional art workshops to patrons aged 55 plus. Upcoming classes will be offered as an 8 session series to provide an immersive learning experience. Please let us know what art classes you would like to see in our quick survey!

Take the survey and tell us what free art classes you'd like
