Salem Intergenerational Council’s Lending Library Project
The week of September 19, 2021, the Salem Intergenerational Council’s lending library was dedicated at the Ingram Senior Center. The project was a year in the making and supports youths and seniors through literacy and art. Five Salem High School CTE students designed and built the four buildings. When a call for artists went out through the senior center and six members of the Greater Salem Art Association took up the challenge. They designed and painted both the insides and outsides of the buildings. Their design revolves around the seasons and resurrection gardens. The Seasons of Our Lives library, as it is now named contains books for children in the spring and summer houses and adult books in the fall and winter houses. If you have a chance, go by the Ingram Senior Center to see the artwork art. Be sure to check out both the inside and outside work. Great job GSAA artists!
