Book Crafts: May 4

Book Crafts
Thursday, May 4 from 5:30 – 8 PM, Sohier Room

The library will provide all crafting supplies. No talent necessary. Free; no registration required. This program is geared toward adults and young adults (ages 14+), as some of the crafting supplies will not be appropriate for children. Light refreshments provided. Questions?
