Clean Out the Craft Closet Nov. 25th @ 2 PM

     Not all of the craft projects that we prepared for storytime or Community Craft programs at the Parker Williams Branch get used.

     Much like turkey, mashed potatoes, and that little bit of stuffing at the end of a Thanksgiving meal, they are leftovers. They get stored away in our craft closet waiting for an opportunity to get used.
