Interested in having a silhouette made of yourself, your child or beloved pet? We are looking for 5 more pre-paid sittings in order to have Ruth Monsell come to the library on Saturday, August 5th to freehand cut silhouettes, which results in two mirror image silhouettes . Ruth can create silhouettes of pets, infants, and loved loves not present from clear profile photographs. The silhouettes can be framed and treasured to be passed on to the next generation. For more information, see the website or come by the library.
