It’s a New Year, and we at Collinwood Library are looking to enhance your experience by offering *more* programming, *more* community connections, and *more* fun! YOU are what make the library happen. 

This Month’s Program Highlights features: 

The Cleveland Museum of Art-In Your Neighborhood  

Children of all ages were able to learn about the art of scroll making, where the medium originated. Their work will be displayed in the Atrium of the Art Museum during their annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration.  

The scrolls will be on view during the Museum’s normal hours from Saturday, January 13th through Monday, January 15th. Collinwood Library had children from O. H. Perry, East Clark and East Academy created beautiful scrolls out of torn paper, ink, markers, and glue.  

See below for the next round of workshops (attendance is mandatory) for kids art to be displayed on May 8th.  These dates are: January 18th, February 8th, March 8th, & April 12th
