 Greasing the Wheels of Gratitude

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the Great Falls Public Library welcomes back by popular demand Greasing the Wheels of Gratitude presented by Alice Kestler on Thursday, November 3, 7:00 pm.  This program is free and open to the public.  Attendance is capped at 15.  You can register by either calling 453-0349 or stopping by the 2nd floor Information Desk.
Alice will walk people through techniques for making their own gratitude beads.  Necessary tools and supplies will be provided.  Along with sharing bead making techniques, Alice will also talk about the history and variety of prayer beads, upon which this practice is originally based.  In this case, however, the focus of the beads will be on developing a daily practice of gratitude.  It is not associated with a particular church, synagogue, or religion, but rather is focused on the personal practice of reflecting gratitude in one’s life.  This is a technique that is incorporated in many positive life philosophies.



Little Free Libraries

Made possible by a grant from NeighborWorks Great Falls, funding from Friends of the Great Falls Public Library, hours of building and painting by numerous volunteers, and book donations from our community




In October the library is hosting an art exhibit by Studio 706 Artists’ Guild.  The exhibit will include a variety of mediums: paintings in both oil and acrylic; drawings, sculptures, assorted 3-dimensional pieces, and photographs.

 Studio 706, a nonprofit artist’s guild, was founded in 1997 to promote fine art, expose the community to local artists, teach and enrich local artists, and provide scholarships.  The guild offers classes, mentoring, studio privileges, and exhibition opportunities to artists working in a variety of media.  In addition it provides scholarships to Cascade County high school seniors planning to pursue art studies in college.  In 2008, Studio 706 awarded $1500 in college scholarships.  This money is primarily raised from the Guild’s art sales.  Membership to the Guild is open at a nominal cost.  For more information on the guild, call 452-5771.
