(Bulverde, Texas) The Bulverde/Spring Branch Library will host a presentation on quilts as well as antique cars on Saturday, September 20th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. as part of its One Book/One Community program. Douglas Christensen, owner of Rebecca Creek Farms in Spring Branch, is a collector, appraiser and purveyor of antique quilts and can date a quilt by the fabric, patterns used and the quilting. He’s had quilt shops on the East Coast and has sold quilts through major shows in the United States. His presentation will occur at 2:30 p.m. and Christensen invites anyone coming to the show to bring an old quilt or two so he can compare the patterns and fabrics with the years in which they were done.
Meanwhile, library visitors can browse through the display of antique cars in the parking lot, provided by the T Fords of Texas. Some are reminiscent of cars that were seen during the early 1900s, setting of The Good Old Boys by Elmer Kelton, which is the selection for the One Book/One Community program.
On Tuesday, September 16th at 4:00 p.m., the Institute of Texan Cultures will present “One-Room School House” a program presenting the life of a student in Texas over 100 years ago. All of these events are free of charge, the public is invited to attend, and refreshments will be served. Funding for the One Book program is provided from a grant by the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation and further information can be obtained by calling the library at (830) 438-4864 or by visiting the website: www.bsb.lib.tx.us.
