3rd Annual EHLS Tiny Art Show

Calling all East Haddam community members!  It is time for our 3rd Annual Tiny Art Show and we need you to get your creativity going.  This fun, free community event is being sponsored by your East Haddam Library System.  It is open for all artists and creators at any age and skill level.  Creating art is great for the mind!

Each Library will have 60 kits available to hand out beginning March 18th.  The tiny art kits contain a 4×4 canvas, acrylic paints and brush.  Feel free to use any other mediums or materials, whatever will fit on the 4×4 canvas.  Try some sea glass art, or maybe guilt art, or even origami.  Any theme or subject can be explored; we just ask that all submissions be family-friendly.

You take your kit home, with a promise to return your created masterpiece to the Libraries by April 15th, so it can be put out for display.  All submissions will be on display until June 1st, and then you can come in and pick up your art work to take home.

We thank you all for participating and hope you all have fun.

The Life of Anna Louise James

Join us at the Rathbun on Sunday, March 10 at 2pm for a celebration of Women’s History Month! Kandie Carle will discuss the life of Anna Louise James, the woman behind the James Pharmacy of Old Saybrook, CT. Come hear about the remarkable Ms. James, who was born in Hartford, CT, to a runaway slave from Virginia. In 1908, Ms. James made history by becoming the first female African American pharmacist licensed in the state of Connecticut. No registration required, we hope to see you there!
