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.

  • 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
  • You will be able to access the mosaic mural online
