Green quilters and distance learning
I was eager to see how this program worked. We gathered at the northeast Kansas library office in Lawrence, one of 17 sites around the state with enhanced library meeting rooms. We assembled our show-and-tell items in front of what looked like a big screen TV.
At 10 a.m. we started talking to (all in Kansas) quilters in Sublette, Dighton, Dodge City, Colby and Coffey County public libraries. On our screen was the image of a room full of students (grades 5 through high school) in Wellington (and perhaps one more school participated).
Hats off to the library system in Kansas for having such a swell learning program in place. This was a special distance learning WEEK, focusing on recycling ideas. And a special hello to the kids in Wellington!
