- Make a mini-diorama - create your own mini-diorama altar honoring a loved one. Using small boxes provided by the Library (available starting Oct. 1, while supplies last) or your own materials from home, create a diorama to honor a family member, friend, pet, or celebrity that passed away. Include a description of your loved one. Get creative! Drop off dioramas by Oct. 14.
- Add to the Remembrance Tree - stop by the Lobby tree and add the name of a loved one or a message.
