This is a great opportunity for the entire family to share some time together. The library will open at 9:30 a.m. on that date.
You still have time to register for the Thursday, April 18, Paint Night. Beginning at 7:00 p.m., paint a canvas in acrylics of beautiful spring tulips dusted by snow. If the snow is too much reality for you, just don’t include it in your piece! Anyone who is 16+ is welcome. No previous knowledge or experience is required, and instruction and all supplies are provided.
