You’re invited to join neighbors in Charles Village at the Village Learning Place tonight as they jumpstart the holiday season with their annual Artisan Market. Crafters from all over the city will descend on the free, neighborhood run, library for a nighttime celebration of community, craft, and fundraising (20% of all sales go to the VLP itself). Jewelers, Sculpture Artists, Painters, Home goods makers and more will be selling their own wares. Snacks, refreshments and lots of community spirit on hand, free of charge, to cheer everyone up on this rainy fall day.
Village Learning Place is an independent non-profit library that houses educational programs, enrichment opportunities, and informational resources for Baltimore City. Their mission is to serve as a repository for books, and a community center for personal and professional growth of patrons. The library, originally part of the original 6-branch Enoch Pratt Library system in Baltimore, was dropped by the city in 1997, and re-opened by Baltimore residents in the community the same year. Since its grassroots inception, the VLP has worked to keep up with diverse needs of the community, and now houses both a library and computer lab as well as new classroom space across the street from its main location for kids programs, a reading resource room and staff offices.
Village Learning Place’s Holiday Artisan Market is open tonight, 7pm-9pm. 2521 St. Paul St., Baltimore, MD 21218. The event is free and open to the public. More info at www.villagelearningplace.org
