Craft time at the library

December 7: Come join us as we get into some holiday crafts! Wed. December 7th and 14th, 5:30 upstairs in the main room. (Feel free to attend either or both!) Suzanne Orlando will guide us in making some decorative books from recycled materials for holiday decorations. We plan to use some discarded books (you can use one of ours or bring one of yours). We’ll use some ribbons and a few beads or baubles. Feel free to bring an old Christmas ornament and some ribbon to recycle. Suzanne will also provide some. All ages welcome! Bring a friend!
