FERRIS PUBLIC LIBRARY: More than books (April 11, 2019)

Learn how to make gorgeous coffee-filter flowers here at the Ferris Public Library on Saturday, April 13, from 11 a.m. to noon.

Aurora Ramirez has taken techniques from several tutorials and has added her own twist. Learn great tips on how to add color and sparkle. No library membership needed, no pre-registration, just show up and get your creativity on! 

For those who participated in the survey on the library’s Facebook page, thank you! There’s still time to contribute to the survey and add your choice of programs. 

The Ferris Library will be holding an Excel Class for beginners based on reactions to the survey.  Registration will be required for the Excel class as we have limited seating. The three weeks of computer classes that we held were so well attended that we need to limit the students for this class. All you need to do is call 972-544-3696 or email me at

After-School Game Time is held each Tuesday, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Children ages 7-17 can play games on the PS4 on the large screen in the meeting room.

Story Time is hosted every Wednesday at 11 a.m. Children and their caregivers can enjoy stories and an activity. Each child may choose a toy from the Treasure chest before leaving.
