Every Sunday during March there will be a free math class at the Abiquiu Library entitled “Exploration of Mathematics” for all ages, ten to one hundred, at any level of math knowledge. It’s presented by D. Robert Fant, theoretical mathematician and the Abiquiu Library and recommended for public or home-schooled students to raise grades or prepare for GED or college. Retired people or seniors will find it helpful to maintain brain health. Artists, musicians and those in the construction trades will find it helpful to enhance natural talent and expand career options. Make peace with math. No grades, no fee, no fear. You can’t fail.

Shake off the winter chills on the first Sunday of daylight savings and drop by the library any time from 1-6 p.m. on March 13th for our Read-a-thon to hear or participate in an all-day reading of “Rio Arriba: A New Mexico County” edited by Robert J. Torrez and Robert Trap. We’re inviting 20 readers to read for 15 minutes each and 20+ artists of any age to draw for the same period. Sponsors fund each reader or artist at $50 per participant. Call the library to sign up or sponsor a reader or artist. Can you make a matching fund to double the donations?
