In celebration of both National Quilt Week and National Library Week, the Library is hosting an exhibit of literary quilts made by members of Over the Edge Quilt Guild of Menomonie. Quilts will be on display in the library throughout the month of April. Each quilt was made with a specific book or author in mind.
Over the Edge Quilt Guild members offered a “bed turning” of the display quilts in the public room of the library on April 8. A “bed turning” is a technique of displaying the quilts as they are layered on a bed or table with a narrator describing the quilt and the associated book or author. A video of the first “turning” is below.
