"There is divine beauty in learning, just as there is human beauty in tolerance. To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you."

—Elie(zer) Wiesel (b. 1928) Romanian-born writer, lecturer, survivor Nazi camps, Nobel

CELEBRATING JOHNSON CITY’S YOUNG ARTISTS

 

The Johnson City Friends of the Library will host a come and go art show and artist reception for Johnson City’s fine young middle and senior high school student artists on Friday, May 22 from 4:00-6:00pm at the Johnson City Library.  Light refreshments will be served.

The art teacher extraordinaire is Diane Hudson.  Ms. Hudson gives tirelessly of her time to ensure the Middle School and High School students excel, and they do!  Four LBJ High School students recently won state awards at the Visual Arts School Event in Dallas, and 10 LBJ Middle   School students won state awards in Austin.  The students’ works are in the mediums of photography, sculpture, painting and mixed media.   The high school students competed against 29,000 other students from across the state including magnet schools for the arts, and the Middle School competed against all size schools from 1A-5A.  These students and everyone who competed is to be congratulated for the time, work and creativity they put into their projects.  Please join the library in celebrating the achievements of these students,  their teacher and the recognition they have brought to our community.

The Friends of the Johnson City Library is a volunteer organization created to provide program and financial support for the Library with their primary goal being the retirement of the building debt.    The annual membership drive for the Friends organization starts on June 8.  Please join the Friends or renew your membership and support the Library and the many fine programs it provides in the community.   From Left to right the artists are: Hailey Bickley, Casy Fleischman andKaren Thompson.
