A walk-in natural photography project will be offered the third week of April. Participants can make art with objects in and around the library, then take and print photos of that creation from their phone or with one of the library’s instant cameras.
A DIY postcards without appointment will take place the last week of April. Participants can create their own postcards in the style of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Blank postcards, markers, paint, crayons and other tools will be available to create postcards.
