In the Art Gallery: Donna Howard - The Summer That Wasn't

The Summer That Wasn’t

Come see this beautiful and uplifting art show in person - make a browsing appointment through our online calendar.

"This series was conceived in a pre-Pandemic February, when I longed for the warm sunny summer days that seemed so far away. I began these “windows” into imaginary summer gardens to push back at the cold. Little did I know I would rely on each new work to sustain me through a long quarantine. This is my tribute to the resilience of the natural world. They are a thank you for the simple joys that can be found in adversity." - Donna Howard

Sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library.

Bring your questions, concerns, experiences, and motivation to create a more equitable society for all.

LGBTQ+ Book Discussion

Join us outdoors in our Mahony Garden to discuss "A Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns." Please register for this event, which is open to teens and adults who are part of the LGBTQ+ community and/or allies. 

Copies of the book will be available to borrow from our circulation desk. If it rains, we'll meet via Zoom, so make sure you provide your email address.

More about the book from the publisher: "Archie, a snarky genderqueer artist, is tired of people not understanding gender-neutral pronouns. Tristan, a cisgender dude, is looking for an easy way to introduce gender-neutral pronouns to his increasingly diverse workplace. The longtime best friends team up in this short and fun comic guide that explains what pronouns are, why they matter, and how to use them. They also include what to do if you make a mistake, and some tips and tricks for those who identify outside of the binary to keep themselves safe in this binary-centric world. A quick and easy resource for people who use they/them pronouns, and people who want to learn more!"
