For the past 20 years, the library has set aside the month of May for displaying student artwork from all nine District 25 schools both in the gallery area and display cases on the first floor.

Children enjoy bringing their families to the library to view their masterpiece and those of their classmates. We invite you to stop by this month and see the students’ accomplishments.
