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.

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”.
