Dungeons & Dragons at Freedom Public Library
Saturday, December 3rd & Saturday, December 17th, 12-3pm
Come join us at the library for our first run of a Dungeons & Dragons game. Our first campaign will be in two sessions: Saturday, December 3rd, from 12-3pm; and Saturday, December 17th, from 12-3pm. Games will be open to anyone from 6th grade to adult. You'll need to attend both sessions to participate in the adventure. If you can only make one of the sessions, you can still be an observer or a non-player character! We'll have all the supplies needed for anyone who wants to play. For more information, see our calendar.
Freedom Artists Exhibit at the Library
Works on display in November & December
With the opening of the Freedom Gallery and the annual Freedom Rings in the Holidays coming soon, there's new energy and excitement among artists in Freedom. The Freedom Public Library is getting things started by featuring works by six well-known and popular Freedom Village artists, printmakers, and photographers who are banding together to share their work. Local resident and painter Barbara McEvoy has established the Freedom Gallery in the village (next to the church and across from the Village Store). She has invited painters Terri Brooks and Peg Scully, printmaker and designer Sarah Tabor, and photographers Joel Rhymer and Nancy Griffin to join her. The group will feature selected works at the Library during November and December, and will celebrate the preliminary opening of the Freedom Gallery on Friday, November 18 at 6 pm when Freedom Rings in the Holidays begins.
