CREATIVE LITERACY is offered and embraced at the Hamlin Memorial Library (HML) in Smethport, PA. Through classes and workshops made possible by past PPA Grant funding the library has built up a reputation for offering children, teens and adults opportunities to express themselves through a variety of mediums. The library hopes to continue this tradition of building Creative Literacy in our rural region by once again presenting to our patron base and the general public a series of art workshops and classes including
Outdoor in-person programming to return on a month to month basis following COVID-19 protocols.
COMMUNITY ONLINE LEARNING EVENTS:

**Our goal with offering the extensive series of Creative Literacy at Hamlin Library is to encourage art appreciation, teach new skills and provide an opportunity for residents of our rural location to take art classes without the need to travel a great distance.
Hamlin Memorial Library receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
