In After School at Your Library, local artists at select library locations work with teens on a weekly basis, using creative projects to encourage and reinforce positive interactions, teach skills, and provide an outlet for artistic expression. Every participating library location has a different artist with a different specialty and project focus. Sometimes it's visual art like drawing and painting, sometimes it's film and video production, or creative movement and dance.
