Woods Memorial Library is launching a mural project and wants some help from youngsters to paint it.

Youths ages 11-18 are invited to paint the mural at the library, at 3455 N. First Ave., through May 28.

Branch manager Coni Weatherford said in a news release that the project is meant to encourage youngsters and families to become active in their neighborhood.

“Through our staff’s participation as founding members of the Amphi Community Action Group, we spearheaded this project to get people—especially young people—energized about beautifying and unifying Tucson,” Weatherford said.

The mural is on the north-facing wall of the library, and was designed by kids who grew up and live in the neighborhood.

The free mural painting workshops go from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursdays through May 28. To register, contact Michael@TucsonArtsBridgade.org via email.
