PCPL part of national project

Friday, August 13, 2010

On Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m., visitors to the Putnam County Public Library will have a chance to become a part of U.S. history.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has created a unique children's art project called "We are America."

The goal of the project is to encourage children ages 5-12 to, by Sept. 11, draw their thoughts on the question, "People have come from all over the world to become Americans. Why does that make us great?"

The USCIS will display submitted artwork in USCIS offices all across the United States, and will be honored during the Sept. 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance.

At the library event, materials will be provided.

Any pre-made artwork should be dropped off at the library on Aug. 14 or before, as projects are required to be postmarked no later than Aug. 16.

Questions about the project can be directed to Rajean Gallagher, PCPL program coordinator, at 653-2755, Ext. 113.
