Well howdy friends,
You can pick up a new Grab-n-Go activity bag from the library each week during Summer Reading, June 1-August 8! Our sweet old chameleon pal, Roy, has been helping us to prepare some awesme activities to keep your hands & your minds busy all summer.

Once you have made your stamps, think about different ways to use them! Try to print a design onto a card for a friend, or large pieces of newsprint to make wrapping paper. You can explore traditional block printing in action with Adinkra made by Ghanian artists or artisans in India.
Happy art-making this week! Remember, we love to see what you create. You can snap a picture & share on the library Facebook page. Tag us #HCLROYGBIV.
