Henna for Teens and Tweens!

  Teens and tweens (ages 10 – 18), are invited to come to Room L129 on the 1st floor of the Library on Tuesday, June 13th from 3:00 – 4:30 pm for the Henna program.  Known as mehndi in Hindi, henna is an all-natural product made from henna tree leaves which are ground to a powder.  When mixed with water (or other liquids) it becomes a thick paste which can then be applied to hands, feet, arms, or legs. Henna is not permanent, it stains the skin and will fade and wash away in 1–2 weeks.  This program requires parental permission to attend and the forms are available at the library. For more information, please call 832-559-4230.
