Go See The Quilt Display at Main San Leandro Library

Twenty one originals handmade by members of the African American Quilt League of Oakland will be hanging until February 28.


If you don't regularly visit the main San Leandro Library it's worth a special trip this month to catch a display put on courtesy of the African American Quilt Guild of Oakland.

Hung from the second floor railing, the 21 quilts depict a variety of scenes and sentiments along the theme of African American History Month.

Stop by the reference desk or ask a librarian for a guide to the quilts providing the title, a brief description and the name of the artist.

The image with this story is "Waiting For the Freedom Train," an homage by quilter Marion Coleman to the underground railroad, the network that helped slaves escape from the south to the free states in the north.

These are works of exceptional craft and beauty. Don't miss this free exhibit.
