CAP archives all of its photos on Flickr, a photo sharing site that will allow us to organize photos every week by program (DNAW-EAST, DNAW-WEST, DNAC and Brightmoor). This will allow you to easily share images with friends and family, through email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and you can download the images for yourself as well!

Redford Branch Mural by DNAC

The image in the article includes the mural high school students apart of our Detroit Neighborhood Arts Corps (DNAC) program created last year at the Redford Branch Library. Students worked with local Detroit artists to create a whimsical and literacy inspired mural.

Below is an excerpt from the article:

"McDonald’s has come up with a new “happy meal.” It’s helping children fill up on reading.

McDonald’s Books & Backpacks program offers local grade school children incentives for checking out books and runs through the end of 2012.  It is designed to encourage reading and build on the reading skills children acquire in school.  McDonald’s extended the program to eight libraries in five additional communities throughout metro Detroit.

The new participating libraries include the City of Eastpointe Memorial Library, Harper Woods Public Library, Oak Park Public Library, Pontiac Public Library, the four Ypsilanti District Library branches and its bookmobile. The McDonald’s Books & Backpacks program was first introduced in June 2010 in partnership with Detroit Public Library and all of its branches.”
