    WHAT IS THE WORLD IS IN OUR HANDS?

    Project SNAP Logo

    This Fall, the Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library is partnering with Project S.N.A.P. to bring The World is in our Hands to our community. The World is in our Hands is a library initiative connecting all of our libraries, local schools, and community partners. Together we will raise awareness throughout our community about the important role that our libraries play for each of us and our families and how “Libraries Change Lives”. The final result will be the creation of a giant mosaic mural that will be at each branch.

    HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
    • Anyone from age 2-102 is invited to participate.
    • Create an 8.5”x11” artwork and attach a message
      about what our library means to you and to our
      community.
    • You will be able to access the mosaic mural online
      in the Project S.N.A.P. Online Art Museum, read
      and share your artist’s statement and see how your
      artwork fits into the “big picture”.
