Through the month of October at the Stephens Branch Library, the Davis Origami Group is presenting an exhibit in the two bookcase display cases and at the accounts desk to celebrate World Origami Days (Oct. 24-Nov. 11). The library is at 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

On Saturday, Nov. 2, from 1 to 5 p.m. in the library’s Blanchard Room, a special event will continue the celebration. There will be an expanded exhibit, and various models — among them, finger puppets, toys/games, practical items (containers/wallets), dollar folds and airborne models — will be taught throughout the day to beginning to more experienced folders.

At 2 p.m., Glenn Sapaden will present the talk “Bringing Origami into the Classroom.” He will be followed by Tom Vinik, who will tell stories while transforming a piece of paper into many objects.
