'An Artful Afternoon' returned to Carlyle courtesy of Cornerstone Family and Youth and the Carlyle Public Library.
The Saturday, Jan. 27 event featured art activities, games, storytelling, art displays and a raffle for a literacy basket - and although the afternoon was free of charge, donations to benefit the libeary were “gladly accepted,” according to CFY Coordinator, Jenn Sedor.
“It's an event that's open to everyone,” says Sedor. “Families are invited to sit down together at our activity table, enjoy the variety of art on display and listen to some fantastic stories told by our resident storyteller and children's author, Margaret Bell.”
“We're showcasing artistic creations made by the kids in CFY's after-school art classes,” adds Sedor. “But really, the entire event is part of Cornerstone Family and Youth's ongoing mission to provide accessible and affordable programming for local youth and their families.”
“CFY also aims to raise awareness of and partner with other family-friendly organizations - which is another reason we're here at the library today.”
