For the past few weeks, the teens in our Project Runway: Go Green series have been making their fashion dreams a reality by creating original clothing designs using recycled and repurposed materials. On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, at 3 p.m., they will share the finished products in their very own fashion show.
Everyone is invited to cheer for these up-and-coming designers and see the end result of weeks of sizing, snipping and sewing.
You are invited to join us on Wednesday, April 26, at 6 p.m. for a Meet the Candidates night. The idea behind this forum is to give candidates for the Bethlehem Public Library Board of Trustees a chance to share a little more about themselves and why they chose to run for a seat on the board. The forum will be taped and broadcast on BCN-TV, the library’s public access cable channel, as well as online.
There is one seat with a five-year term on the ballot this year. Incumbent board President Mary Redmond will be seeking re-election.
The chief responsibilities of the board of trustees is to see that the best possible library service is provided to the community, to assure adequate financing and proper money management, to act as library advocates, and to review policy on a regular basis, and develop new policy as need arises.
