The Coos Bay Public Library will host an Art Swap on Thursday, November 9 in the Myrtlewood Room, 10:00am – 2:00pm. Have extra art supplies in good condition? Help us divert materials from landfills while encouraging environmentally friendly creation! How it works: Community members who are interested can donate their new or gently used art supplies they no longer need to the Coos Bay Public Library during the month of October and through the day of the Art Swap on November 9th.
