What’s a great cure for the COVID blues? Getting crafty with your favourite library, of course!
We miss meeting in person to deliver crafty and creative programs so much that we’ve devised a way to still craft together while staying apart – it’s called Make With Us. Starting in November and each month throughout the Winter, register online and then pick up your free kit containing all the supplies you need as well as instructions to make a different craft.
Our first Make With Us kit, available for pick up now, is the 3D Paper Ornament seen below, and is perfect for sprucing up your home, Christmas tree, car or work space! Register here, then come to Central Library to pick up your kit before November 28th.
And stay tuned for future Make With Us crafts! We will have a different one each month!
We also have hundreds of great books to inspire you to get crafty, check out this “Make With Us” book list in our catalog.
