Have Book, Will Travel… at the speed of light!
It’s that time of year again—school’s almost out for the summer!
Join us Monday, May 20th, from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. for Art Day! This month, we'll be practicing the art of paper marbling.
Paper marbling is a technique that originated in Asia with Suminagashi, which means "floating ink" in Japanese. The process involves painting on thickened water with many colors, brushing the paint to create designs, and dipping paper in the water in order to transfer the paint to the finished product.
Plan for a fun time outside the library, or in the Lewis Auditorium in case of rain. We hope to see you there!
To celebrate national Get Caught Reading month, The Urbana Free Library is challenging teens to get caught reading. . . in the library!
The rules are simple: every time teens are caught reading (in the library) in May, they earn a raffle ticket for a weekly prize drawing. There's no limit to the number of tickets you can earn, so get busy reading!
