Kids at Carpenter Branch Go Back to School in Style

Carpenter Branch spent the month of August getting ready to go back to school. In celebration of the school year starting, Carpenter invited school-aged and high school-aged kids to come and decorate their own school supplies. Kids used two different techniques to decorate their school supplies, either by covering their school supplies with washi tape and duct tape, or by creating colorful collages using modge podge. All patrons’ creations were very unique and reflective of their personalities. This fun and easy way to make your school supplies special for you is quite simple to do at home. Check out some of Carpenter patrons’ creations below:

Worlds of Wonder: Pancake Art!

Kids at Central Library created monumental pancake art in June and had a lot of fun playing with their food!  The library provided cookie cutters shaped like the Statue of Liberty, Great Pyramids, Eiffel Tower and other monuments from all over the world.  It was up to participants to create a scene on their table cloth in which to insert their delicious monument.  Take a look at all the yummy results:
