Forsyth County Public Library just launched Leave Your Mark, a community book project that allows you to check out blank art journals to add your own creative expressions. The project was inspired by the Visual Libraries project in Portsmouth, England, UK. Teen and children’s books are currently available for check out and holds at Central Library and adult books will be available next week in the Humanities Department at Central Library. Already the project has been featured in the Life in Forsyth blog and the Ars Urbi Serviat blog!

As the project continues, retired books will come to the North Carolina Room where they will become part of special collections. These are “artist books” in the truest sense! We look forward to seeing the beautiful and interesting creative expressions of our community. Go on, check out a book and “Leave Your Mark”!
