Beautify the BarriersHave you noticed that line of concrete jersey barriers as you exit the library? Local artists have been hard at work turning them into works of art! Each artist interpreted the Summer Learning Program theme, "Tails and Tales," in a unique way and painted their design on the barriers last month. We hope you enjoy this special community art project! Learn more about the artists and their designs.
