Join instructor, Crystal Kitchens, on Jan. 23, 2015 at the Madison library from 10:00 until noon. You will learn how to make a ruffled scarf on the knitting spool (with 8 pegs). Bring a skein of "ruffle" yarn (Red Heart "Sashay" is one brand) and your own knitting spool (Boye makes the "Jumbo Knitting Spool") and "pick" so you can finish your scarf at home. No knitting experience is required. If you don't have an 8-peg knitting spool, the instructor will bring something you can use. This class is for adults and youth ages 14 and up. Please RSVP to Teresa at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 256-461-0046. Read more about Knit a Lacy Ruffled Scarf on a Spool Knitter - No Needles! (Madison)
Local author, Scott Phillips, will be at the Madison Library on Thursday, December 18 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss his new book, Remove Before Flight. As a ten-year-old boy inspired by fellow Ohioan, Neil Armstrong, when he landed on the moon in 1969, Scott dreamed of someday becoming part of something larger than himself. Ten years later, through a series of serendipitous life events, Scott Phillips embarked on a career with NASA's groundbreaking Space Shuttle Program. He was the last team member to exit the first External Tank prior to its maiden flight on April 12, 1981, and saved the Remove Before Flight ribbon as a memento. What followed was an extraordinary 33-year adventure, encompassing the entire span of the program -- from the depths of tragedy to the exclusive never-before-seen photos and first-hand stories. Remove Before Flight takes the reader on a historical and personal journey that will enlighten and entertain. Read more about Local Author, Scott Phillips, to Visit Madison Library

Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl's castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there's far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye.
