Message from the Director: Peer into the World of Stained Glass

Livingston Library Community, 

The dazzling colors that illuminate a room as the sun shines through stained glass is not only breathtaking, but holds a history rich in tradition. If you are interested in learning more about the history of American stained glass from the late 19th century, we invited you to join us on Monday, June 12th at 7pm in the Library’s program room for the lecture A Window into Stained Glass.

During this lecture we will discover that while most stained glass originated in European churches and cathedrals, not all stained glass is ecclesiastical in nature. We will also explore how stained glass has been incorporated into government facilities, universities, museums, well-known hotels & restaurants, and even residential homes. 

If you are interested in how you can create your own stained glass masterpieces, we also invite you stop by the Library, where we have books such as “Kicking Glass: a Creative Guide to Stained Glass Craft” by Neile Cooper with Robert Giaguinta and “Stained Glass Making Basics” by Lynn Haunstein that may pique your interest!

We hope to see you at the Library for this wonderful event!

Best,

Amy Babcock, Director

  1. I wish this was offered virtually, as well!
    It’s a great creative undertaking for ambulatory challenged persons. Too bad we can not participate from home.
