We have some exciting news. The Front Porch Library has been selected by documentary filmmaker Amber McKenzie to be the topic of her next film. Amber is from California — she’s also Jennifer M’s cousin. She picked The Front Porch Library because she wanted an uplifting and inspiring topic. She also wants more people to know about our library and thinks that a movie is the perfect way to accomplish that.
We would like you to plan to be at the library on Sunday, April 15th or Sunday, April 22nd (or BOTH!) to be in the production.
On the Sundays leading up to filming, we will be doing some spring cleaning and sprucing up of the front porch and yard. We’ll also try interviewing and photographing each other, like professional journalists and filmmakers do. Library hours are 3 to 5 pm on Sunday.
Hope to see you soon.
We’ve been exploring maps this month and spent a day making our own. Some maps showed the route from the library to home. Others included friends’ houses in the neighborhood. And a few maps were architectural, showing the layout of a bedroom. Click here for more photos.
We have had a number of FSU Circle K and Key Club members join us as volunteers at The Front Porch Library, and we would like to extend a very public
to all who have helped in some way.
