Display your artistic talents and celebrate the love of books at our Bookish Birdhouses Art Show! Pick up a decorative birdhouse at the library beginning August 1st (while supplies last!) with a $1.00 deposit, and decorate it in honor of your favorite book or author. Return your completed birdhouse no later than September 5th to have your deposit returned and be included in our Bookish Birdhouses Art Show.
The decorated birdhouses will be on display inside the library September 8th - 30th.
