Quilter's handiwork

Throughout the month, the Linthicum branch of the Anne Arundel public library will display the handiwork of quilter Mary Martin.

The showcase will have small examples of quilting, wall hangings, pillows, a table runner, yo-yo collar and double-wedding-ring design.

The yo-yo is an old design that Martin enjoys doing. She is known as the "yo-yo queen" to fellow members of her club, the Village Quilters.

Martin, who lives in Pleasantville, has been interested in quilting since childhood. She has been active in the Village Quilters for 10 years and is a past president.

Examples of her work are part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Institution. In the 1980s, she submitted an idea for a Christmas tree with a Colonial theme, and it was accepted and put on display.

Guest readers

The Linthicum library branch will welcome students from Brooklyn Park-Lindale Middle School as guest readers for children ages 2 to 6 at 10 a.m. Wednesdays through Dec. 18.

Seventh-grade students from Learning Team 3 will read as a service learning project.

The hours will count toward volunteer time required by the state of Maryland before graduation from high school.

Information: 222-6265.
