SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Public Library will host the following events in January:
Dark Days Are A Good Time For Indoor Activities
Many people spend indoor tie reading or watching movies, but for people that want to meet others, the Syracuse Library is providing crafting, games and cooking activities just for winter. A beginning Mahjong group is meeting to learn Cantonese Mahjong at 1 p.m. every Monday through March. This easy game is a social time that has been played for centuries by Asians. String Theory is an opportunity to come for weekly visits with people as they work on knitting, crochet, or embroidery projects.
Saturday events for families are a breakfast and book sale sponsored by the Friends on Jan. 26. Runners and early risers start the day with a hearty breakfast that is a fundraising event from 9 to 11 a.m. or until sold out. Take Your Child to the Library Day is a drop-in event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 2.
The Food from Fiction book club has selected this year’s books. The Feb. 1 meeting is talking about “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” that is about a book club as an alibi during World War II. The story unfolds as a series of letters between a potential author and the people living on the island. Magnolia Recipe Sharing Club is watching bread-making and sampling at the February meeting.
