Call for Artists! Not in Our Town Essay and Art Show

Following the horrific action of one individual on October 27 of last year, at the Tree of Life Synagogue, thousands of people from across the country and world responded with love and kindness. Our Library community was no exception. Countless parents and caregivers have asked “how can we help?,” and “how can we continue to show our kids that this is not the way we want to live?” In 2019 and beyond, the Shaler North Hills Library will be consciously and deliberately making an effort to provide opportunities for discussion, growth, caring and sharing. We are providing an opportunity for children, tweens, teens, caregivers and adults to express their thoughts and feelings through artistic expression, be it through the written word, photography, sketching or even fingerpainting. We will be accepting entries during the month of January at the Youth Services Desk in the Children’s Department. Visit the art on display in our Community Room beginning February 1. Join us for a closing reception on Friday, March 1 at 7:00pm. We are better together!
