February at the Library

Share

 

Lake Travis Library has two things going on this month:

 

1. Fine Forgiveness

In conjunction with Love Your Library month, the Lake Travis Community Library is holding a Fine Forgiveness campaign in February. With the donation of a nonperishable food item, the library will forgive up to $20 in fines.

 

"We know that fines can add up and we want to make sure everyone has access to the library and to our materials," said Library Director Morgan McMillian. "Reducing fines is one way to bring customers back into the library and back to borrowing the materials they need."

 

 

Anyone with overdue fines or fines as the result of lost or damaged materials may bring in a charitable donation of a nonperishable food item to clear the fines up to $20. Donations collected at the library will be given to Lake Travis Crisis Ministries.

2. Sharon Moore Exhibit

 

The Lake Travis Community Library will display the artwork of Sharon Moore during the month of February. A native of Houston, Moore graduated from Rice University and taught English and Humanities at a local high school. After a move to Dallas, Moore took time to raise her children and served as a church administrator. Now living in Austin, Moore focuses on her artwork and is a member of both the Texas Fine Arts Association and the Creative Arts Society. 
 
 
A lifelong artist, Moore spent many years painting in oils and acrylics and creating handmade jewelry. Her newest passion is to create fiber designs using shells, feathers, beads, and driftwood which she has collected from all over the country. Moore's fiber designs include woven wall hangings, mandalas, dreamcatchers, and organic tapestries. She also creates woven forms on a wire matrix including baskets and sculptures. 
"My other love is creating mixed media collages showing people I have loved or do love, using papers and personal items to tell the story of what they did or are doing with their lives," said Moore. "Other collages are totally abstract designs or illustrations of the American Indian, the Buddhist tradition and other spiritual disciplines, under water and beach scenes, or still lifes." 
 
 
The community is invited to join Moore for a reception on Saturday, February 10th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to visit the Lake Travis Community Library during the month of February to view the fiber designs and mixed media collages of Sharon Moore.
