Book To Art

WHEN: Mondays, July 18, and September 19 at 3:30 pm

The Athol Public Library is excited to introduce a brand-new book club for teens! Book to Art combines a love for reading and creativity. The club is set to meet every other month.

How it Works:

  • Read the selected book. (You can pick up a copy in the Teen Space.)
  • Create a piece of art inspired by what you read. You can use any medium - drawing, paints, collage, sculpture, needlework, mixed media, digital, or beyond!
  • Discuss your thoughts on the book and share your art at the meeting.
