The Summer Reading Program is open to all ages so come on in and sign up the entire family. The best part – this program is absolutely free!

The fun doesn’t stop there. The County Library will offer special drawings for children and teens who meet the County Library Reading Challenge. The children’s challenge is to read at least 45 books or the equivalent in pages and minutes to receive a ticket. For teens, the challenge is to read at least eight books or the equivalent to get a ticket. New this year: each kid and teen who reached the challenge will receive a ticket for a chance to win a Kindle Fire 7” tablet at their branch library. Also, for every 25 items checked out this summer, receive a ticket for our countywide drawing to win one of the grand prizes which include Samsung Galaxy Tablets, a WiiU gaming system, a super hero-themed bike, and a kids Spider-Man Dune Buggy.

Veterans Initiative in the Arts: Plant to Paper Project on display

plant to paperA special exhibit “Joining Forces Plant to Paper Project” will be on display at the 29 Palms Art Gallery from May 26 to June 25.

The exhibit is a culmination of a project that began in early 2015 when the California Arts Council announced a competitive $10,000 grant for projects to enrich the lives of California’s veterans, active-duty military and their families through the arts.

The Arts Connection reached out to Mil-tree, an arts-based veterans and community organization in Joshua Tree and other nonprofits and began the first phase of their project – removing invasive plants with the support of Joshua Tree National Park’s vegetation management team. Participants then transformed the plants into pulp and paper and developed the materials into two- and three-dimensional works.

The works will be on display at the 29 Palms Art Gallery, 74055 Cottonwood Drive in Twentynine Palms.
