We’re still here – check out our virtual programming

The Library Is Still Working for You! Join Us for Virtual Programming on the Library’s Social Media

We want you to know that the Library is still here for you! Our libraries are closed to support flattening the curve of the COVID-19 spread. And our in-library programming has been cancelled during this period. But we are still working to provide you with programs of interest on our virtual platforms (see links on the bottom of this webpage). See the activities list below, which is a work-in-progress. Updates will be posted at: https://www.libraryvisit.org/virtual-programming/

We are planning the following activities on Facebook (LibraryMahoningCounty) and other social media platforms.

blackout contestBlackout Poetry Contest

Indulge in some “creative destruction” in April while expressing your inner poet during our Blackout Poetry Contest for teens and adults.

You create a blackout poem by taking a block of text and “blacking out” text with a marker leaving behind the words you wish to make up your poem.
