This summer, adults have been challenged to imagine their story.

Follow along with our online tutorial on how to make your own zine! Pick up materials and inspiration at the circulation desk. Here’s a blank template for you and our example zine!

August 19: Who Tells Your Story? Community Art Project

Tell us a story-but make it art! We will be building a community art installation with the stories of locals. Print or pickup a feather template from the main circulation desk that you can decorate however you would like-with words, photos, doodles, color, whatever! The finished product will look something like this:
