Several East Riding Libraries have signed up to the 64 Million Artists January Challenge 2020, which encourages people to take part in a short creative challenge every day in January.
The participating libraries now have a creative station where customers can take part in the challenge, with materials and suggestions.
Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, said: “We know that just a few minutes of creativity every day can increase a feeling of positivity and wellbeing, so I hope that lots of people will get involved in this fun Challenge!”
Libraries taking part are:
Customers can take their creation home with them, leave it in their local library to inspire someone else, or share it on social media using the hashtag TheJanuaryChallenge and #64millionartists. Participants are encouraged to tag in @ERidingLMA too (East Riding Libraries, Museums and Archives on facebook and twitter).
The Challenge is open to all age groups, and it is free to take part. Examples of daily activities might include poetry; doodling; brass rubbing; or drawing.
