ROVER Mobile Arts Program coming to Heyworth Public Library

We are excited to offer the ROVER: Mobile Arts Program Haikus & Prints art class for those 12-19 years old through a grant from the McLean County Arts Center on Saturday, March 19 from 1 pm to 3:30 p.m. Join instructor Dylan Welch at the Heyworth Public Library to create a unique piece of art that combines printmaking with a personalized haiku poem. Students will roll ink onto stencils cut from thick paper, and will practice writing with calligraphy pens.  All artwork created as part of the ROVER: Mobile Arts Program will be included in an exhibition at the McLean County Arts Center in August 2016. Participants will be invited to attend the exhibition’s catered opening reception. Artwork will be available for pick-up following the close of the exhibition. You can sign up in the library or through a link on our website calendar.

It’s the last week to get a blind date at the library for 2016. Also to go with our Read A-Latte theme we are giving gift certificates for coffee or hot chocolate randomly included in twenty-five of the blind date books. Thank you to the IGA for the donation of the coffee pods. Don’t forget to use the “Rate Your Date” book mark and return it with the book to be in a drawing for a library tote bag. The Winter Read 2016: Read A-Latte read for prizes will continue through March!
