Local events at your local Plano Library
There are so many programs, classes and events are just getting underway at your Plano Public Library during December and January!
The spring issue of Engage is now available in libraries and online to help you plan your new year with Plano Public Library. You’ll find exciting things inside, including 2 pages of Money Smart classes for kids, teens, and adults as we gear up for hosting the traveling Thinking Money for Kids exhibit later this spring.
You can find all this and more at www.planolibrary.org.
Some highlights you’ll find include:
The popular 18st AIRSpace is transitioning beyond a physical space at only Harrington Library into the new Spotlight Art program. Artists in Residence will still display, demonstrate, and teach their special style…but now happening at different library locations! January will kick off Spotlight Art at Harrington with returning artist VET. VET will demonstrate Boro Art on January 18 and conduct a workshop so you can make your own fabric Boro Art on January 25.
