The library offers a free monthly craft session for adults — we like to call it our Crafternoon program. These sessions are held on evenings, during the day and on weekends to make them available for as many people as possible, and all supplies are provided. This is in addition to other craft events that are held for children, teens and adults. Our craft and activity database, CreativeBug, is available to all library patrons and is available 24/7. There are thousands of craft instructions with new activities added every month, including video tutorials.

We work hard to develop Crafternoons that are not only fun, but help participants learn a new skill skill, develop a finished project that can be used in their home or even given as a gift. Our biggest goal is for people to enjoy these activities and each other.

Some comments received from Crafternoon participants:

  • “I used the skills I learned from paper quilling to make Valentine cards for my family and friends.”
  • ” I love getting out of the house, doing something fun and meeting new people.”
  • “was able to bring in personal mementos of my mother and incorporate it into a craft that I can hang on the wall and be reminded of her…”
  • “fun and relaxing”
  • “enjoy talking with other individuals that are interested in crafts”

We welcome you to join us! Information on Crafternoons can be found in our events calendar, on our Facebook page and on our website. Registration starts two weeks before each class and these fill quickly, so sign up early. As our registration limit is reached, a waiting list is started so please give us a call if you need to cancel — this allows that spot to be offered to another patron. Hope to see you on July 18 as we “Put a Bird on It.”
