SMART AT THE LIBRARY
11:30am – 12:30pm
Deschutes Public Library
SMART, Start Making A Reader Today is gearing up for the 4th annual SMART Art: Show, Sale, Social on October 22, 2015 at 5:15pm at Kendall Toyota in Bend, OR.
Each year SMART invites young artists to participate in the Art Contest connected with SMART Art. This year we would like to invite the community to take part in the fun by joining us for a SMART at the Library event which will be held in Bend.
SMART at the Library is also an opportunity for us to recruit volunteers for the 2015-2016 program year. Come to your local Library and find out more about what it takes to be a volunteer for SMART in your local schools. It only requires one hour a week, it’s fun and it’s of great benefit to the kids.
Bring your friends, bring your children, bring your grandchildren and join us for an entertaining afternoon of volunteer recruitment and artistic fun. Our goal for this event is to:
- Enlist more SMART volunteers to read with children in local schools (It only takes one hour a week!)
- Create some book-inspired art that can be entered into our SMART Art contest and displayed at our fall fundraiser.
- We will provide all the materials. All you need is a love of reading and some time to relax and channel your inner artist. Art pieces submitted by children ages 3-18 will be eligible for prizes at our fundraiser in the fall.
- Can’t make it to SMART at the Library? No problem. Log onto www.getSMARToregon.org and click on the “Call for Submissions” link to find out about submitting your book-inspired art pieces for SMART Art, 2015. Or if you are interested in volunteering log onto www.getSMARToregon.org and click the “Volunteer Now!” button on the homepage.
SMART at the Library promises to be a fun event for all! And the best part about it? It’s FREE!

SPEAK MEMORY: BEGINNING YOUR MEMOIR
12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The universe is made of stories, said the poet Muriel Rukeyser. What’s yours? Have you written it down yet? Join local educator and author Ellen Santasiero for a workshop at the Sisters Library on Tuesday, September 1, from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. The workshop is free and open to the public but space is limited and registration is required. Register on line or by calling (541) 312-1032.
Beginning with warm-up exercises that help people access important memories, Santasiero will lead participants in writing and editing their own short memoir. “This workshop is for anyone who wants to record and present their memories using literary techniques,” she says. When asked, she was unable to pick her favorite memoir. “There are just too many,” she says. Santasiero is quick to point out the importance and value of the genre. “They provide a sense of community — a sense of history and identity — to rapidly changing families and communities,” she says.
Ellen Santasiero works as a freelance writer and teaches literature and creative writing at OSU-Cascades in Bend. Her essays, memoirs, interviews and articles have appeared in magazines and other venues since 2001. She was a featured reader at Caldera Arts in Portland in 2013.
