Barrels for Education

Barrels For Education

On display through August 17
Louisville Public Library

Using paint, plates, colored glass and a lot of imagination, 22 teams of art students in the Boulder Valley School District have repurposed ordinary 55-gallon drums into barrels of art! Artists of all ages, from first graders to high school seniors beautified these pieces which are now on display at the Library. Now it’s your turn to vote for your favorite, either online or at the Library and donate to this special cause. The event is sponsored by Impact on Education. A percentage of the money raised will go to participating Boulder Valley Public Schools and the top 3 barrels will receive bonus funding. More info at

And don’t forget about the Library’s Children, Teens and Adult Summer reading programs through August 3. Check the Library website for program details.
