MCPL Celebrates National Library Week, April 4 – 10

April 2, 2021

Mid-Continent Public Library is celebrating National Library Week, April 4 – 10, with the return of its annual “Access Art” workshops as well as prize giveaways. MCPL’s theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Libraries Empower Communities,” and the Library is inviting everyone to stop by their local MCPL branch to discover how their Library can empower their life! Beginning Monday, April 5, MCPL branches will be giving away free tote bags, while supplies last, to customers who come in to check out items and use Library services.

Throughout the week, the Library will also bring back its annual Access Art program series, which offers instructional art classes for all ages. This year’s Access Art is completely virtual, with classes being held on the Library’s MCPL360 Facebook page or through Zoom. Art supply lists are included in the event descriptions on the Library’s website (, so attendees can participate in the classes at home. Additional information and registration are available online as well.

Registered participants at each Access Art class will have their name entered in a prize drawing! Adults will have the opportunity to win an Access Art t-shirt, and kids can win a Crayola Create 'N Carry Art Set. Access Art programs include:
