Teen Artists Celebrate the Seasons!

Since February of 2018, teen volunteers have designed, measured, graphed, and planned mural art for the east-facing window of the Library made entirely of Post-It Notes.

After measuring the window, teens created an image on a grid to create pixelated pictures with dramatic color contrast that blends when seen at a distance. 

Highly visible from the town parking lot, the public art murals break down the barrier between inside and outside spaces, engage the community, and highlight the holidays, seasonal themes, and nature.

Ten teen volunteers have worked on this project so far, starting with a Valentine’s Day heart 

in February, and most recently have added a snowman design for the cold winter months. 

All teens earned community service credit for their work. Participating teens include Beckett, Calvin, Ava, Caroline, Mark, Miles, Kiani, Lani, Kaylen, and William. 

Kaylen Shaw, freshman at Redwood High School, says he enjoys spending time with his friends at the Library and doing art for community service. 

The Library provides opportunities for students to volunteer for their school community service requirement while learning skills and engaging with the community of Tiburon. 

In the last year, 55 teens provided over 300 hours of volunteer work for the Library.
