Mini-Masterpieces for Young Children

Mini Masterpieces is our annual program that connects preschoolers and their families to the arts. Throughout the month of May we are offering three different take-and-make kits available to pick up at six library locations and the Bookmobile (while supplies last.) 

Kits are yours to keep, made possible by the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund. Stop in and pick up a free kit for your young child today at Rondo, Riverview, Rice Street, Arlington Hills, Sun Ray, Highland, or any of the Bookmobile stops!
