Newsy: Art Tile and Read Across Lawrence

Art Tile in Bathroom
Book clubbers are very excited to have the name of the PBR Book Club on an art tile that will be permanently installed in the family restroom of the children's area of the new Lawrence  Public Library.  We are making a unique contribution to our city's bathrooms as we participate in a speical fundraiser sponsored by the Library Foundation.  We will be a part of history! Karen will post pics of the tile after it is fired and installed.
