Julia's Studio: Creative Workshops for Teens

What is Julia's Studio?

This summer, BPL is offering a free series of creative workshops just for teens! We have an exciting array of instructors and sessions planned, and all sessions revolve around this year's theme, “Textile Treasures”. Each workshop is designed to be inclusive, expressive, and fun, and all levels of creativity and artistic ability were welcome.  Photographs of works will be posted to the BPL website after each session.

These workshops were offered in memory of our former teen librarian, Julia Nelson, who inspired us all with her vivacity and courage.
