Community Art Projects

June:  This project allows you to design your own artwork that fits on an old library card.  The cards will flutter in our windows on criss-crossed strings.

July:  July's masterpiece is a community puzzle.  Pick up your large puzzle piece at the library and design it anyway you like.  Perhaps a favorite place?

August:  We return to the windows for a fluttering origmai butterfly display.  We'll provide the origami paper and the butterfly folding instructions.
