The modern public library supports life long learning, advances knowledge creation, and strengthens its community. It provides the tools and resources to support creativity, research, and problem-solving while asking and answering questions that challenge patron assumptions. Both the physical and virtual library spaces encourage patrons to engage with information, process it, reflect on it, have conversations about it, and develop new ideas. The Artesia Public Library is such a library; bringing people, information, and ideas together to create opportunities.
Crafty Kitch Lit is a Book Discussion Group dedicated to foods and crafting. Each month the book selection has a food theme. This group meets the last Thursday of the month at 1:30 p.m. The monthly book selection is available in at the library.
