Love Your Library Tile Project

Sunday, February 16th 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM Lawrence Public Library All ages
Love Your Library Tile Project

Love your library and make a unique contribution to Lawrence’s new library building! The Library Foundation is sponsoring a special fundraiser that gives kids of all ages the opportunity to become a part of LPL history. Visit us on Valentine’s Day weekend and create your own special tile design that shows why you love Lawrence Public Library. Your tile will be permanently installed on the walls of the family restrooms in the new children’s area.


  • $30 per tile, or $50 for two tiles
  • Kids of all ages are invited to visit the library to create a drawing that shows why you love LPL (suggestion: bring a sketch with your ideas!). These will be permanently transferred onto ceramic tiles that will be installed in the new building
  • Tiles measure 6″x6″
  • The number of tiles is limited to 500, so come early to be sure you get one!
  • Proceeds will support literacy programs at the new library and will be matched with National Endowment for the Humanities grant funding
