Library to host many different activities in May

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017

May brings a variety of new and exciting programs to the Huntington Library. Kicking off the new month will be a DIY @ HCTPL program on making hand-made pasta noodles. This program is for adults and takes place Saturday, May 6 at 10 a.m. and is free.

The workshop will be hands-on and feature three different methods of noodle-making: using a mixer with a pasta attachment, using a pasta roller with a cutting bar and making them by hand using a rolling pin and a hand cutter. Registration is required so the library knows how many supplies are needed. Wearing old clothes or an apron is also suggested.

Teens will also get a chance to experiment in the kitchen with the Huntington Library’s Breakfast in a Mug workshop. Teens can cook exactly what it sounds like - a variety of breakfast foods in a mug. This program takes place Saturday, May 13 at 10 a.m., and no cooking experience is required.

Students at Huntington University, along with other adults feeling stress before the summer, can come enjoy a De-Stress Night at the Huntington Library Thursday, May 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. There will be soothing music and lights, calming activities to try, adult coloring, stretches, breathing exercises and more. Come and relax for a few hours, or drop in to learn some calming tips and tricks you can take home. The program is free, for adults only and all supplies are provided.

The Huntington Library will also host its first program outside of the library building. Join library staff and an Acres Land Trust hiker guide for a Community Hike at Tel-Hy Nature Preserve. The hike starts at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 12, and is open for all ages that can comfortably walk. Participants should meet at Tel-Hy, located at 1429N 300W, by 6 p.m. to join the hike, which will be a guided tour filled with historical and other relevant information related to the preserve.

Acres Land Trust works to preserve a variety of Northeast Indiana nature preserves and locations. The hike is free, and there is no rain date should it be cancelled. Registration isn’t required, but registering at http://hctpl.info/program-reg will allow the library to contact you and let you know the status of the hike with regards to weather closer to the hike’s scheduled date.
