Idea Box Exhibit March 2017

In March: Picture a Better World

Soak in the beauty of some colorful original works of art created by the students of Oak Park Elementary School District 97 on display in the Idea Box in celebration of Youth Art Month! Displayed selections represent students from every grade (kindergarten through fifth) and every public elementary school in the district.
Many thanks to the art teachers (and students) for sharing these creative and inspiring works. A reception to honor young artists and their teachers will be held Wednesday, March 22, from 4-5 pm.
And if you're wondering where the middle school artists are represented, they have a display at Oak Park and River Forest High School!

What is new this year?

The top New Year’s resolution for 2017, according to the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, is to be a better person. It’s fitting, then, that to “Build a Better World” is this year’s theme. With a focus on our community’s aspirations, the library will have dedicated times when staff and community members can facilitate workshops, storytimes, crafting sessions to benefit local organizations, and more.
