    It's been a rainy, storm-brewing spring break week so far in and around Louisville and Kentuckiana. My daughter has been participating in a "Decorate Your Library" art program at the Jeffersontown Branch of the Louisville Free Public Library. Check out her art piece before she put the final touches on it. The art program was made possible through a partnership with the City of Jeffersontown, the Jeffersontown Museum, and the Jeffersontown Library.

    Louisville Free Public Library locations and other area libraries around Kentuckiana finish out the spring break week strong. See these program samplings to inquire about participation now through Saturday, April 11.
