The Art of Flint Knapping
Flint knapping is the age-old art of making arrowheads and other edged stone tools. Gerry Goth, Town of Berry resident, has been flint knapping for many years, and we are happy to be hosting a display featuring several arrowheads Gerry has made and the tools he uses to create stone points. Stop by the library for a look, and you’ll see why flint knapping is considered an art.
Get Your Cap Times Here!
The library now carries the weekly Cap Times. Stop by each week, and get your free copy!
Library is Local Drop-off Site for the Mazomanie Food Pantry
When you return your library materials, don’t forget to bring in a non-perishable item for the food pantry. Your donations are much needed and greatly appreciated! No expired or previously opened food, please.
Open Music Jam
Do you have a guitar gathering dust? Are you a harmonica player without a band? Don’t play an instrument, but like to sing or simply listen? Stop by the library on Thursday nights at 6:00 and join other area musicians in a weekly music jam! From beginner to way good, all abilities welcome!
