Construction is nearing completion on the new Florence Community Library, and we anticipate the new library opening soon, but unfortunately, not soon enough for some of our previously-scheduled programs. Two programs previously advertised for the last week of August are delayed until September, with our apologies for the inconvenience.
Sept. 17: Music to Massage the Muse
At noon on Thursday, September 17, ONEBOOKAZ author Sara Fujimura is at the new library for a brown bag lunch workshop, which is free to all members of the public.
If you’re an aspiring writer, you have probably struggled with writer’s block. Learn how to get unstuck by using music to paint vivid pictures in your creative brain. From techno to classical to movie theme songs, Fujimura has music guaranteed to inspire even the most petulant of muses. The program is open to anyone interested in creative writing, with the presentation suitable for anyone from 4th grade to adult. The main discussion lasts approximately 50 minutes, followed by a 10-minute Q & A.
Civic Engagement Workshop: Ready! Set! Go!
Library staff is working with the specialists from Wholonomy Consulting to reschedule the “Ready! Set Go!” workshops, and a final date for the workshops should be announced soon. We apologize for the inconvenience, but promise that the workshops will still take place, and that once dates are announced, both morning and afternoon workshops will still be available to make them as accessible as possible.
The specialists discuss working effectively as a team using Collective Leadership, a new shared leadership model. Participants learn about two approaches to positive change, called Appreciative Inquiry and Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). These approaches identify community strengths – and then apply those toward community goals.
Both of these programs are made possible by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State. For more information, or to sign-up, please contact the library at (520) 868-8311.
