Welcome to the companion guide for Quilts in the Library.  These quilts hung from January through March in 2015. Quilt artists are: Michelle Howard-Harrell, Celeste Janey, Brenda Jones, Jonetta Jones, Olga King, Mildred Maines, Valerie Poitier, Jeannette Spencer, Hattie Talley. All photos were taken by RCC photographer Phuong Tang.  You can also view these pictures of the Quilt Exhibit on our library's flickr.  

In this guide, you'll find links to the catalog for books, as well as many other resources, about quilting and the connections between quilting and African-American history.  The tabs at the side of this page will direct you to information about books, articles, streaming videos, and online resources. If you have any trouble finding these sources, please ask a librarian for help.
