Grab your cowboy boots and saddle up for the library’s Azle Goes West program! The month of February will be dedicated to a series of events celebrating the American West. We had our opening event last Saturday, when young and old were entertained by Dan Gibson, a master storyteller and banjo player. We had a blast, and the fun only continues! This week we’ll be hosting the Sid Richardson Museum on Tuesday, February 7th at 4:00 p.m. as they teach kids about Charles Russell’s famous illustrated letters and teach them to make one of their own. Then, on Thursday, February 9th at 6:30 p.m., we’ll be listening to Meg Hacker, Director at the National Archives of Ft. Worth, tell us about the tragic life of Cynthia Ann Parker, mother of the famous Quanah Parker. On Sunday, February 12th at 3:00 p.m., we’ll be learning rope tricks with Azle’s own Kent Durham! Plus, we’ll have cookies and a fun craft. All events are free and will take place in the Library Community Room. We want to give a particular thank you to the Azle Library Trust, whose generosity has made this month possible.
There’s a bonus to those adults who attend at least three or more events. If you do, you’ll be entered in a drawing for a beautiful painting of a longhorn by artist Dale Martin. So be sure to add your name to our sign-up sheet at each event you attend. Can’t wait to see you there! AGW Brochure
