Interact with variety at Superior library

If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. Marcus Tullius Cicero Cicero's quote is a good reminder the Downtown Farmer's Market is still being held in the parking lot north of the library from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Wednesday.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Cicero's quote is a good reminder the Downtown Farmer's Market is still being held in the parking lot north of the library from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Wednesday. Stop by to pick up some fresh farm produce and a library book.

On July 27 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the meeting room, come make a craft with quilter Angela Haworth. Working with small squares of hand dyed and batik fabrics, participants will create a colorful picture quilt by gluing the fabrics to a paper base.

On Aug. 2 in the meeting room, join us for some chess programs with U.S. Chess Federation-rated Expert, Dane Mattson. All are welcome. From 2-3 p.m. Dane he teaches basic chess move to beginners and 3-4 p.m. he teaches chess strategy to players of intermediate to advanced ability. Only one percent of all USCF players are rated expert, so we are very fortunate to have Dane at the library to help you learn the game or improve your skill level.
