Artistic Activities at Cupertino Library This Summer

Summer Reading is almost here! Encouraging everyone to read lots of books is the heart of what we do. What you read, and where and when you read it is completely your choice. Want to try some new authors and genres? Ask the nearest librarian for recommendations.
In addition to finding great new reads, 2017 will be an active summer for aspiring adult and teen artists at Cupertino Library. No artistic experience will be required. Just bring your enthusiasm and willingness to learn. If you are eighteen and older, you are eligible for the adult programs.
