Fall for Fine Arts

For over six years our branch has offered successful hand-on arts/crafts/DIY programs for families every Thursday at 4 p.m. After the pandemic, I continued these type of programs in innovative ways online.

Fall for Fine Arts was a weekly library program series offered every Thursday in October 2020 via Zoom to celebrate National Arts and Humanities Month and LAPL Fall Traditions. The program promoted library resources and exposed kids to the Masters and their art techniques. Submitted art works from the Zoom art class also turn this into a mini art exhibit. 

National History Day and Teacher/Librarian Collaboration

National History Day (NHD) projects have been part of our collaborative library programming for years. They are a great way for students to learn the research process in a deep and meaningful manner, meeting many National School Library Standards. It's also a great way for students to practice the various literacies: news, information, media and digital.
