The ACL is once again planning expanded programming in the summer on many Wednesday evenings. The pace is easier, the evenings are lovely for a summer stroll to visit us, and we enjoy hosting these special events to see our friends and neighbors.
More details forthcoming, but for now here’s what we’ve got in the works thus far:
Garden Art Night – Wednesday, July 15th – 7 pm
Back by popular demand! See above for details.
Hey Dave Acoustic Evening – Wednesday, July 22nd – 7 pm
Music at the ACL! Hey Dave, a band featuring Aubunrdale guys named Dave and former members of Opositive…an eclectic acoustic ensemble featuring original music and cover songs.
PJ Storytime & Stuffed Animal Sleepover – Wednesday. July 29th – 7 pm
Wear your PJ’s and bring your favorite stuffed animal. After the stories are over, your stuffed animal will get to spend the night with the giant Curious George!

Calling ALL AGES…we are going to create and adorn our lovely ACL grounds with sculpture made from found items in nature. Join us for an evening of hands-on fun and art installation in our very own ACL garden! We will work together to make the objects and place them outdoors for our community to enjoy all summer long. By participating in this workshop, you can learn how to make art for your own garden.
Looking forward to once again adorning our garden with community art
We will have supplies, but advance registration helps ensure that we bring enough for everyone. Please contact Liz Noonat firstname.lastname@example.org
if you would like to join us, but we’ll also take any last-minute drop-in participants as well. If you have found items from nature (your yard, the beach, etc.) that you’d like to share, please feel free to bring them along.
Join our knitters on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. Knitting guru Judy Castaldi will be on hand to help knitters with projects, troubleshoot, or even teach you how to knit from scratch. Anyone who enjoys knitting or would like to learn how to knit is welcome to come. All ages and skill levels are welcome.
Upcoming Knitting Dates: 7/11, 7/25, 8/8

Our next ACL Book Club selection is A Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole. We will meet on Saturday, July 11th at noon. Loyal ACL volunteer Chris Weinmann, who has taught college courses on humor in American literature, will lead our discussion. You’re not going to want to miss this session, folks!
About the book…from Wikipedia
A Confederacy of Dunces
is a picaresque novel by American novelist John Kennedy Toole which appeared in 1980, eleven years after Toole’s suicide. Published through the efforts of writer Walker Percy (who also contributed a foreword) and Toole’s mother, the book became first a cult classic, then a mainstream success; it earned Toole a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1981, and is now considered a canonical work of modern literature of the Southern United States.
The ACL Book Club: Bring your coffee, we’ll supply the donuts!
Books are available at the Auburndale Library–we plan to meet every 6 weeks or so. We’ll choose the next book when we meet in July; bring your suggestions.
We look forward to having you join us! Bring your coffee; we’ll supply the donuts! Any questions, please email Cecelia Kwartler at: firstname.lastname@example.org
A beloved annual ACL tradition…our summer craft night is tonight at 7:00 pm! The ACL has inherited a bumper crop of mint tins–let’s craft these babies up. Tweens, teens, and adults are invited to join us for a casual evening of mini creativity. Tweens just need to be accompanied by their adults.
We’ll supply the tins and an assortment of goodies and findings for making our tiny masterpieces. Please just BYOS: bring your own scissors. You are of course welcome to bring any other crafty items for your own use. We invite you to surf around online to get some ideas ahead of time: https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=mint%20tin%20dioramas
