Children who participate in the Dayton Metro Library’s Summer Challenge will have many opportunities to learn ways they can help to Build A Better World. Free hands-on programs will encourage imagination, experimentation and discoveries about the world around us, and keep kids engaged in learning while they are out of school.
“Hidden Art: A Collaboration with Habitat for Humanity” is one such opportunity. In this program, children of all ages are invited to write messages of encouragement or add cheerful drawings to raw building materials that will be used to construct new Habitat for Humanity homes.
“This project can teach children about compassion, and help to fill a new home with love and support,” said Allison Knight, Children’s Services Librarian. “It’s one small way children can contribute to literally building a better world for others in our community.”
The free program is supported by an LSTA grant, and takes place at these Libraries:
