Live @ Your Library

The theme of L@YL 2013, Everyone is an Artist: Explorations of Creativity within Daily Life, has been developed with the understanding that creativity is not limited to the stereotypical starving bohemian, struggling in her studio loft to create the world's next masterpiece.  Instead, whether it is a student organizing a class presentation or decorating a dorm room, we all engage in small acts of creativity everyday.  The focus of this event series is to explore the process of creativity, with an emphasis on bridging the gap between professional versus personal creativity and present the information in ways that are both educational and entertaining.  Join us this National Library Week to enjoy:
