Crafty Saturday

Beaded BookmarksAre you feeling crafty this summer? If you are, stop by the library on Saturday afternoon! At 1:30 PM we will have our first Craft & Go of the summer. Come to the information desk and we will give you a kit to make your very own beaded bookmark (supplies are limited). These bookmarks are lovely and a lot of fun to make. Nothing’s better than marking your place in your book with a bookmark that you made.
