The Start Making A Reader Today program is gearing up for the third annual SMART Art: Show, Sale, Social on Sept. 25, at 5 p.m.
Each year SMART invites artists young and not-so-young to participate in the art show connected with SMART Art. This year, the community is being invited to take part in the fun by joining SMART at the Library on, Aug. 18, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., at the Jefferson County Library in Madras.
Are you ready to make a difference, give back or pay it forward in your community? SMART at the Library is also an opportunity for us to recruit volunteers for the 2014-2015 program year. Come to your local library and find out more about what it takes to be a volunteer for SMART in your local schools.
Bring your friends, bring your children, bring your grandchildren for an entertaining afternoon of volunteer recruitment and artistic fun.
The goal for this event is to:
Enlist more SMART volunteers to read with children in local schools (It only takes one hour a week).
Create some book-inspired art that can be displayed at our SMART Art fall fundraiser.
We will provide all the materials. All you need is a love of reading and some time to relax and channel your inner artist. Art submitted by children, volunteers and community members will be eligible for prizes at our fundraiser in the fall.
