Time to Share Your Stories!
The Tilton Library has been working on a community art project to bring some color, meaning, and fun to the front of our library! “Spin a Good Yarn” refers to telling a tale.
Part 1: The base of the library’s grand copper beech tree is being wrapped (or spun) with colorful yarn. This is being done in shifts by a group of volunteers (one household at a time). Because of the cold weather this part of the project has slowed down a bit. Therefore, we will begin the next part of the project as we continue to cover the tree upwards…
Part 2: People are now invited to submit stories, wishes, or messages, which will be placed on a white tag and attached to the tree. So, we will have a bright, colorful tree that will have fluttering white tags with stories written by people in our community! Visitors (wearing masks and socially distant) will be able to read these stories.
- Submit your stories via email to email@example.com or on paper (in an envelope) placed in our book return box near the front door.
- Please keep your story/wish/message brief as they will be transcribed onto a piece of paper about the size of an index card.
- Topics may include: stories/wishes/messages of hope, love, and kindness in general, or may be specific to libraries, the Tilton, Deerfield, your country, the world, school, your family, your friends, life in the pandemic.
- Please include your name and age and whether or not to include that information on the tree.
We look forward to reading your “yarns” and sharing them with your community!
