Join us for a special performance of Rags to Riches where we will explore Ananse stories!

In this play we explore the premise that the Ananse stories spread throughout the world and were told in many different ways and by many different peoples. We get to see Aunt Nancy deal with old Uncle Lazybritches. Brer Rabbit shows us why rabbits live underground. Finally, we explore how they’re all connected when we see Ananse go fishing with his good friend the Turtle. Join as we watch Aunt Nancy, Bre 
Rabbit, and Ananse all get caught up and spun from the same web.

About the branch

With the closing of Main Library in January 2017 for a major renovation, the MakerLab is temporarily located at Northgate Mall. The lab is open whenever there is a program scheduled.

Regularly-scheduled Open MakerDays allow for the community to explore the many tools the lab has to offer, including 3D printing, Cubelets, BeeBots, watercolor bot, and so much more. During MakerDays, patrons may bring in digital files to print on the 3D printer.
