Outdoor Art in Delta Township, Michigan!

There is a fabulous display of imaginative yarn bombing at the Delta Township District Library, 5130 Davenport Drive, Lansing, MI (just east of the Lansing Mall). The Youth Services department coordinated young patrons & DTDL crafters to create birds, banners, compact disc ornaments, tree wraps, God's eyes, and lots of creative energy this month! What a grand way to celebrate National Library Week, April 10-16. It is fantastic--thanks to the Youth Services staff for brightening my day (and township)!
