Arts Jam! presents news from all arts in Oliver

 

Arts Jam on Tour

Arts Jam! is the monthly social gathering of the arts council, with the public always invited to attend. Arts groups and businesses share their upcoming events, and the council updates members on items of interest from the Board.

This month, in honour of BC Arts and Culture Week, Arts Jam! goes on tour to the Oliver Regional Library, and is hosted by the Friends of the Oliver Library (FOTOL).  Join us on a special date: TUESDAY April 23 at 9:30 am at the Oliver Library.  Learn what the FOTOL is doing, hear about upcoming open houses and fibre arts conferences from the Desert Sage Spinners and Weavers and Double O Quilters, find out what’s up with the Handbell Ringers, get info on local arts exhibits, and hear an update on how the Sage Valley Voices Concert went. There’s always a lot of news from our 17 member groups and 14 businesses.  Discover who’s doing what.

The arts council Board will share some samples of new logos they are considering. Our friendly little quail is still part of the image, but wow! what a makeover! Your comments welcome. Information on the latest landscaping project will also be announced.

Arts Jam! is always a busy, friendly, newsy gathering, with refreshments provided. Visitors and new members always welcome. Be in the know on Oliver’s lively arts scene!

Arts Jam! is regularly held on the fourth Monday of the month. Next month: Monday May 27 beginning 9:30 am at the Quail’s Nest Arts Centre.

Loud singing encouraged in Oliver Library

There will be no “shhhing” in the Oliver Library on Tuesday December 20. Instead, there will be the sound of joyful music. In fact, you might even see the librarians singing along to the harmonies of piano and saxophone. 

Join the Friends of the Library this Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon for a Christmas twist on their usual third-Tuesday coffee morning. Music, singing, and refreshments.  Carol sheets provided (see? there will be some reading at the library!)

Note: This is a great time to pick up some books to see you through the Christmas holidays when the library will be closed. Happy reading – and singing!

Coffee and Board Games On Us! says Friends of the Oliver Library

The Library is setting up a corner for board games, and wonders if anyone could donate a nice chess set, backgammon, cribbage board, or other quiet boardgame to provide another social facet to our beautiful library.
