Happy Art IS Education month!  To celebrate youth arts learning, all the branches of Alameda County Library are presenting a total of more than 50 art events for kids, teens and families.  At Centerville Library, we have two art-making programs, one for kids and one for teens.

Both programs will take place on Tuesdays, March 6, 13, 20 from 2-6 pm.  Stop by anytime during these hours, no registrations are required.

Hand-in-Hand Paper People

This program is for kids of all ages. Participants will have fun decorating a paper cut-out person with crayons and recycled materials and attaching a message about one thing that’s important to creating a better future. All the paper people will be connected hand-in-hand to make a long, free-turning chain for display in the library. The community is invited to bring drawings and photos about the theme “Creating a Better Future Together” to add to the artwork.

Paper Quilt Collage

This program is for teens. Participants will use recycled materials and art supplies to design a personalized paper quilt square. The quilt squares should reflect the theme of “Creating a Better Future Together”. The quilt squares will be joined together to make a community quilt that will beon display in the Teen area of the library.
