Imagine. Create. Explore.
What if the library was more than just a place for books, music and movies? What if the library was a place to learn survival skills, brew beer and fix your bike? Find new opportunities to make, create and explore.
Spring can be full of energy, promise, and activity. Join ImagineIF to think more deeply about what makes a wild time, explore bear safety, and get your hands dirty with natural dyes. Get wild with ImagineIF Libraries this spring.
