OLEAN, NY — For anyone looking for an excuse to get out into the sunshine, the Olean Public Library is hosting an Olean Chalk Your Walks event from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The library encourages folk to let their imaginations run wild to create beautiful chalk art and to submit their creations to the library via Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter via a direct message.

Participants should be sure to tag #oleanchalkyourwalks with their posts. Because prizes will be awarded, submissions will be limited to one per household.
