If you are in grades 4-6, this program is just for you! Set sail on a journey of imagination and creativity with the wonder of maps.

Transform into a cartographer by learning the secrets of mapmaking, from drawing basic shapes to using symbols and legends. Unleash your creativity and design a map of your dreamland, a fantastical kingdom, or even your own neighborhood. Mapmaking promotes spatial awareness, problem-solving skills, and creativity. No prior experience is necessary, just a sprinkle of imagination and a thirst for adventure! For grades 4-6.

Space is limited: register in advance to reserve your spot and receive reminders. Registration will guarantee your seat until the event begins. Accessibility needs? Please contact ask@acpl.info as soon as possible - we’d love to help.

Summer SPARK brings amazing events, creative programming, and fantastic prizes to everyone! Get started at www.acpl.info/spark. Summer SPARK is generously funded by the Foellinger Foundation, Friends of the Allen County Public Library, and the Allen County Public Library Foundation.
