This winter, XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness invites you to explore the power of feelings and the effect they have on yourselves and others. Children, caregivers and families are invited to play and act silly while considering what makes you happy, sad and mad. Work together to ask questions, listen and learn more about the people around you through words, movement, art making and other hands-on activities. This interactive exhibit is especially suited for children ages 2–12 and their families, as well as school groups, however, all ages are welcome. XOXO is open during regular library hours in the Marketplace and Kids’ World.

This exhibit is made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Arlington Heights Memorial Library. XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness was created in 2014 by Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, with support from The Fetzer Institute.
