February will see a variety of events at Lopez Library. Stave off the winter blues with a few of these events:

The popular theatrical organization Book-It All Over will be back in Lopez Library.

The group, part of Seattle Repertory Theatre, travels to venues to present literary works dramatically. On feb. 3, at 8:45 a.m., Book-It-All-Over will perform “Henry’s Freedom Box,” the true story of a young black man mailing himself to freedom.

The Lopez Library has a copy of “Henry’s Freedom Box” available for patrons to check out. The performance, funded by Friends of the Lopez Library, is free and open to the public.

Wintertime Storytelling will begin Feb. 6 at 4 p.m. Alie Smaalders, Rosie Sumner, Kip Greenthal and Cynthia Dilling will entertain all ages in front of the fireplace with their storytelling.

Titles include a story by Mem Fox entitled “Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge.” This story is about old age, memories, the loss of memory and friendship. All stories are appropate for adults, as well as younger people.

Additionally, Joe Reilly, singer and songwriter from Michigan State, will perform on Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. The performance will be in the library community room and will be a childrens’ concert on the environment and other subjects.

Local musician Jaime Cordova will accompany Reilly on drums. The concert is free.
