The Moline Public Library is providing kids in the Quad Cities a unique experience. Giving the opportunity to draw cartoons using a digital tablet with Jim Allen. This program is part of a project called "Next Generation Grant", and is open to students in grades 4-12. If you know a kid, or young adult who is interested in art, this could be a perfect event for them.

Registration opens for this virtual event on January 15.

This four-part series will take place on February 16th, 18th, 23rd, and 25th at 3:30pm via Zoom.

Registration is required and is limited to one per household due to limited equipment. Up to four students can participate per household registration but will need to share a single tablet.

If this is something that interests you, or if you know any teens and tweens out there who would love this, you can register at Project Next Generation 2020-2021. You can also find more information here. 

This event was established to help educate at-risk students and bridge the digital divide. By providing technology training for students, PNG empowers students to succeed academically and eventually as independent, contributing members of society.

The goal of this year’s program: Dream, Design, Do! is to engage students in grades 4-12 in various STEAM programs to increase their knowledge, skill, and confidence in these areas. Students are asked to contribute to a journal that will be put together at the end of the grant cycle to chronicle our journey.

Funding for this grant was awarded by the Illinois State Library. If you have any questions you can email, information@molinelibrary.org. The Moline Public Library website can also be found here.
