Hidden in the shade behind the Wellesley Library, nearly 50 children painted the windows of the building. Sherry Eskin, freelance librarian, introduced the young children to the numerous colored paints. Soon, they grabbed brushes and splashed colors over the glass.

The paint was washable and mixed with detergent for a better cleanup. The windows made for perfect canvases; the artistic opportunities were open-ended and age-friendly. Experimenting with the paints showed each child’s artistic originality and integrity.

Emma Weiler, Head Librarian of the Children’s Department, thanked the Friends of the Library for making this possible. Cheer and delight radiated from her face as she spoke with parents and children.
