Saturday June 2nd
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In this free workshop geared for grades 6-8 students learn about stop-motion animation by working in small groups to make their own movies. Our instructors teach the principles of storytelling, planning, prop design, camera angles, filming and editing, and guide children through the process of filming their own short film.


We provide all the equipment, props and expertise, so students just need to bring their imagination and creativity. Final movie files will be available to download so students can share with family and friends.

Calling all teen fashionistas!  The Fox Library is holding a Summer Preview Fashion Show for the Fashion at the Fox clothing sale.  Be both fashion designer and model by picking out the outfits you'll strut down the runway during our 30 minute fashion preview.  Talula Christian, local artist, costume designer  and fashion photographer will be there to mentor the process and give fashion advice.

Out Until Monday

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you all know that I will be out of the library until Monday.  There was a death in the family and I am out of the state.  I did have to cancel the Cupcake Decorating Program on Sunday, sorry to do it at the last minute.  I'll try to reschedule this program soon.
