Library Kiosk: Margaret's Books

Margaret Beech is a VERY active member of our monthly book exchanges and as a result, many of our guild members own her books. Thanks to Becky for coordinating this month's Humboldt County Library kiosk display to honor the visit of Margaret (all the way from York, England).

Margaret Beech, teacher and book artist extraordinaire, traveled all the way from York, England to teach this all-day workshop. Margaret is a member of our guild and she faithfully participates in the monthly book exchanges. She mails her books from York and the exchange book she receives is then mailed back. Every month. She has an amazing amount of energy and enthusiasm for all things book related. Please visit her website to see some of her work: Beeches 13
