Beautify the barriersIn 2021 and 2022, local artists painted murals on the line of concrete "jersey" barriers near the exit of our parking lot, transforming them into fabulous artwork! We are again seeking artists to repaint the barriers with new designs that tie into 2023's Summer Learning Program theme, "All Together Now."  Download an application or get one at the library to paint a barrier this year.
