May may bring blooming flowers, but June’s looking pretty good itself at the Elizabethton-Carter County Public Library and surrounding entities.
“May is full of opportunities and the month of June is going to be exciting, with new events added and the beginning of our Adult Summer Reading Program,” said Maryann Owen, the adult services and outreach librarian.
Here are things to mark on your calendars:
  • Spring hours for the Carter County Fiber Arts group are Mondays from 5:30-7:30 p.m. For all who love fiber arts and have a project, this event is for you. The group has folks who knit, crochet, needle point and felt.
  • The Courtyard Community (for residents only) has a Carter County Health Assessment survey coming May 16 from 2-3:30 p.m. at the Courtyard. It’s an anonymous survey and snack bags and care bags are available for participating in the event. Also at the Courtyard is Courtyard Crafts and Coloring for residents every first Tuesday from 3-4:30 p.m. All supplies are provided.
  • The Coloring Connection is the second Tuesday of each month from noon-2 p.m. at 201 N. Sycamore St. All supplies are provided.
