Go Green @ Your Library

A recycled puppy!

On Friday, April 29, children in grades 1-5 gathered at the Nesconset Branch of the Smithtown Library to create Upcycled Art. After a reading of The Dumpster Diver by Janet S. Wong, children created collages using a variety of unique materials, including packing peanuts, raffia packaging, in addition to everyday items that had been repurposed into a masterpiece!

Couldn’t make it to the library for our Upcycled Art program? No worries, did you know you are being green each and every time you use the library? Checking out books, movies, CDs and audio books keeps clutter off of your shelves at home and helps reduce the amount of paper and plastic that is required to make new materials.
