JANUARY 2021

Rogue Reads Take & Make: The Day You Begin Time Capsule, 5+ YRS

Ashland Library: January 2-7 • 12:00–4:00 PM

There are many types of beginnings: the first day of school, losing your first tooth, meeting your best friend, or your first time to the library! But sometimes a normal day can also be a beginning. Mark your beginning with a Take & Make Kit inspired by Jacqueline Woodson’s children’s book The Day You Begin. Each kit contains supplies to make a time capsule that showcases the things that are special to you today. Add small treasures that remind you of who you are: a special rock, a clipping from a magazine, a photograph… it’s all good! Put it away for a year, and see what surprises it may hold. Kits are available while supplies last.

Windows in Time: “The Land Remembers: Landscapes of the Rogue Indian Wars”

Online: Wednesday, January 6 • 12:00–1:00 PM

The Southern Oregon landscape has seen many changes in the century and a half since the Rogue River Wars raged through the region. Despite being one of the longest and bloodiest of all the Indian wars in the West, it remains largely forgotten today. But, the land endures, and much remains to take the observant traveler back in time. Photographer Richard Bergeman revisits the landscape where the conflict tore through the fabric of both indigenous and settler communities over 150 years ago. His black-and-white infrared photographs offer a hauntingly beautiful homage to a history forgotten.
