Pssst! You know what a little birdie just told me? That Manitowoc Public Library and Woodland Dunes Nature Center & Preserve have joined forces to bring a wonderful bird watching program to the community. "Birding 101" takes flight in the Balkansky Community Room on Monday, September 25, at 6:30 PM. Bird watching is a fun activity for all ages. Jessica from Woodland Dunes will show families the basics of bird watching. This program is provided through the support of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE-Region 4. And please remember that children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
Join us at Manitowoc Public Library in the Balkansky Community Room for our first Mini Masterpieces Art Show, taking place on Tuesday, September 26 from 6:30-7:30 PM! View artwork created by our patrons and dress as your favorite artist to be part of the Costume Contest! Enjoy live music, snacks, and take pictures at our photo ops.
Misako Rocks! is a Japanese illustrator, comic strip artist, & youth graphic novel author. Misako left Japan at a young age & came to America in order to fulfill her dream of becoming an artist. Come learn about her journey when you join us for “Misako Rocks! A Manga Drawing Workshop.” This hands-on, super interactive, high-energy manga event for aspiring artists between the ages of 11 & 18—co-sponsored by Manitowoc Public Library & Manitowoc International Relations Association (MIRA)—will inspire participants to explore their creativity & push themselves outside of their comfort zone while guiding them to create their own original manga characters! We hope that you can join us for this step-by-step tutorial in MPL’s Balkansky Community Room on Saturday, September 30. Registration is required and opens at 5 PM on Friday, September 15.
