May Days at Paynesville Branch Buzzing With Mayhem, Mirrors, Modern Dance & More!

 Fill your month with classes, demonstrations and performances sponsored by Great River Regional Library (GRRL) and the Legacy Fund. Friday, May 7, choose between Tween Mystery Night, (a Rock 'n' Roll Murder Mystery for ages 11 - 16, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.), or a chance to learn basic Salsa Dancing techniques from a Guthrie Theater teaching actor (7:00 to 8:30 p.m.).

May 21, Artist David Rickert will demonstrate painting an outdoor scene in acrylic paint, from start to finish, starting at 6 p.m. Overhead mirrors will make it easier for participants to see every stroke, and David will explain what he's doing and why he's doing it, and answer audience questions as he paints. 

The next day (May 22), professional dancers from Wicked Sister Dance Theatre will present an array of danceworks drawing on their skills in modern dance, acrobatics and movement theater. Presented at the Paynesville Area High School Auditorium from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. this part workshop and part performance, includes opportunities for audience members to try some of the moves themselves. Finally, on Wednesday, May 26, we're offering two computer classes. Join us for "Basic Email", 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., if you're new to email and want some pointers and tips. Or, sign up for a course in online "Genealogy Research", 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., perfect for more advanced computer-users interested in learning more about searching online databases. All these programs have limited attendance, so sign up online, or call  (320.243.7343) or stop in at the Paynesville Branch of GRRL  to register!
