Outside the Lines 2017

When people think of libraries, they generally think of books and quiet spaces. Here at SMCL we like to shake things up and do things a little bit different. From September 10 to 16 join us as libraries around the world go Outside the Lines, opens a new window!

We will be hosting a myriad of activities that showcase the variety of activities we offer at your local branch.
