BRODHEAD — Throughout March, the public library will be showcasing artwork created by students of the Brodhead Elementary and Middle School.

This is a wonderful opportunity to view student artwork in another setting. Please stop by to view the work created by our spectacular artists.

Youth Art Month has been observed nationally since 1961. It is a time to acknowledge a different part of a child’s education. Art gives children the

opportunity to express themselves, use their creative imaginations, experiment with a wide variety of materials through multi-sensory experiences, and gain a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. It teaches children to become critical thinkers, encourages them to make connections with their heritage, history, and other cultures, and expands their minds.

President Barack Obama says, “The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create.”

The Brodhead Memorial Public Library is located at 1207 25th Street and is open Monday through Thursday 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, Friday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Saturday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
