Join the Northeast Library in celebrating National Writing Month!
November is NaNoWriMo, a month-long writing challenge. Starting in 1999, the challenge to write 50,000 words over 30 days has spawned a community of writers, readers, and everyone in between to come together and make time for writing. Every Monday the Northeast Library will host a meet-up for writers.

Come and get lost in mankind’s shared connection with Nature… You never know what you’ll find when exploring the “Back40.”
“Pond Nymph” and “Mud Lillies.”
The J. Ardis Bell Library – centrally located on the Northeast Campus of Tarrant County College (TCC) – is proud to host a month-long art exhibition, featuring the works of local artist Janlynn Rogers. The exhibit, entitled “Back40,” will run from May 14 thru June 13, 2019, in the main lobby area of the Library. The display is open to the entire Northeast Campus community during our normal business hours.
An artist’s reception will be held at the NE Library on Wednesday, June 5th. The artist will be available to answer questions from 2-4 PM, and then again from 6-8 PM. Refreshments provided.
“What the Willow Knows“
When describing her work, Guest Artist Janlynn Rogers wrote: “Many of my current series involve research of the biophilia hypothesis, that is, the human connection to the natural world, and study of the collective unconscious. Nature and the cyclic world are ever-present in my work, made apparent in my use of organic shapes, harmonious arrangements, and use of scale. Life is a measure of definitive time, and death is a measure of worth of life.
My work conveys my struggle to understand the common practice of sacrificing nature for technology’s sake. It allows me to investigate the comparative value of the empathetic versus the apathetic self, based on our interconnectedness to others in our environment.”
Janlynn Rogers is a 2019 graduate from the University of North Texas Arts program, with a double-major in Ceramics and Painting/Drawing. Come enjoy this diverse exhibit of painting, ceramics, and mixed-media artwork, curated by Ashley Roberts of the NE Library’s Computer Learning Center Team. The display is accompanied by a selection of titles from the Library’s collection, providing information on the artist’s media and studio tools.

The staff of the Northeast Library are pleased to present a wide variety of displays and exhibits throughout the year. It is just one more way in which we strive to educate, engage, and entertain our entire campus community, while expanding the learning experience outside of the traditional college classroom. We hope that you’ll come back often (to the Library, and to our blog page) to see what’s on display!

Do you have the next Great American Novel inside you? Well, we say the world needs your novel. And now is your chance to get it done, or at least, get it started.
November is National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write 50,000 words during the month. Of course, there is no requirement to write that many words. For some, it is simply a great opportunity to get some ideas out of their head and down on paper or in print. Perhaps you might only create an outline to work on during the winter months.
Whatever you decide to do, the J. Ardis Bell Library on the NE Campus is one of the newest “Come Write In” locations in our area to help support your passion for telling stories. The Library will be hosting Come Write In times each Monday in November from 7-9pm. We will start things off with a Get Acquainted session on Monday, October 30, also from 7-9pm. All sessions will meet in NLIB 2102.
If you decide to participate, you will become a WriMo. You can find out more information at: https://nanowrimo.org/how-it-works
In addition, there is a bonus. It is an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who also crave the craft of telling a story.

Now showing at the J. Ardis Bell Library on the Northeast Campus of Tarrant County College, from September 5th thru October 2nd, 2017…
The biennial “Best of Texas Clay” exhibit is hosted every other year by the Texas Pottery & Sculpture Guild. In their own words, the Guild (TPSG, for short) is “an organization of three-dimensional artists that range in skill from novice to professional.” To learn more about the Guild and its members, we invite you to visit their website (see the link shown above) or seek them out on social media.
The stated goals of the TPSG are:
- To raise public awareness of and appreciation for contemporary three-dimensional arts
- To provide regular opportunities for artistic growth for its members
- To create a unique environment in which clay artists enrich each other’s lives and creative impulses through friendship
For 2017, the Guild selected the J. Ardis Bell Library as the gallery space for their 4th biennial exhibition. This display of work from more than 30 local artists, with over 50 pieces of art in multiple styles, will be enjoyed by our campus community throughout the month of September. This promises to be an outstanding show with some amazing works of art!
The NE Library is both pleased and proud to partner with the TPSG artists’ group, as well as the NE Campus Fine Arts Department and the Northeast Campus Association of Potters & Sculptors (NECAPS) student group. The exhibit will be accompanied by an assortment of library books and materials on pottery and sculpting.
Please join us for an artists’ reception on the evening of Friday, September 15th, from 6-8:30 p.m. There will be refreshments, live music, and the chance to meet & greet many of the sculptors and potters who created these amazing works. We hope to see you there.
