Points of Culture

Points of Culture Series

Culture is defined as “The sum total of the learned behavior of any given society.” This is a great definition for Mr. Kocher’s high school World Cultures class that it came from, but for the purposes of this program, it will also mean how we experience culture in our own community, tapping into the rich talents within our own town. Libraries are a hub of culture in any community.  
Join in as we explore topics such as music, painting, theater, languages, story-telling, history, crafts, poetry, pottery, film watching and making, and any other aspect of culture that we can include.

    The effect of music is found in all cultures and stirs the soul as a celebration and expression of the essence of life. Many local fiddle musicians found ways to use their instruments to do just that. We will explore the lives of some special fiddle players in Indiana County who have a special place in our local history.
