Family time gets abstract at the Englewood Public Library's Messy Process Art event, where about two dozen family members and little ones gathered on tarps to let the creativity flow.

Maureen Elley, 68, who lives in south Denver, came with 2-year-old Evelyn Elley, who tinkered while she watched on Feb. 5.

“She loves it — she looks forward to coming all the time,” Maureen Elley said. Kids “just like doing it, putting glue on the caps.”

The event for toddlers and preschool-age kids featured colorful bottle caps, cups and glue. The session puts emphasis on the process and fun, the city's website said.

It's one of many events at the library geared toward young children — bottle-cap art was just this month's focus — and library staff also put on “storytime” reading activities for different age groups on weekday mornings.

The library sits at 1000 Englewood Parkway in the Englewood Civic Center, the city hall.
