This is the fabulous fabric banner that my kids are creating for permanent display at the library! This image was taken by a photographer from the local newspaper, and is just too splendid not to share. Each youth picks their own fabric background square and can add a collage of cloth words, shapes, textures and embellishments that they feel relates to their self identity. After a few more weeks of work, all of the pieces will be sewn together into a double-sided banner that will eventually be hung on display in the library. Fantastic work by a fantastic group of students! Reason number 5,395,350 why I love my job.
