Artist Leesa Haapapuro will be Artist-in-Residence in the Vandalia Branch Library’s Opportunity Space for the month of January. During her tenure, she’ll have studio hours and offer free classes to the public.

“I'm thrilled that an artist as talented as Leesa Haapapuro is coming to the Vandalia Library! Her creative energy will inspire everyone who visits,” said Nancy Madden, Vandalia Branch Manager. “I can't wait to see the amazing art that she and our talented patrons will create for our beautiful Quiet Reading Room.”

MONDAYS | 2 - 4 PM
TUESDAYS | 5 - 7 PM
SATURDAYS | 3:30 - 5:30 PM
