Art Works Blog

The Art Works Blog is what you might expect from the National Endowment for the Arts – it's literate, informed, and jam packed with leading artists, writers, thinkers, and creative innovators. Updated Monday through Friday, the blog supports the NEA's efforts to celebrate "the diverse and dynamic landscape of the arts across America.

Art Apps

Apps (little software applications) allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. Listed, you will find some app recommendations we have come up with through trial, error, and our own experiences.

ACC Library Services does not endorse any fee-based apps nor it is liable for reimbursement of any apps paid for by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
