Book Folding Class– Patrons often admire the beautiful book art that we have on display, created by Becky Phillips. This form of art takes old books and repurposes them into very unique pieces that appear complicated but can actually be achieved through surprisingly easy instruction. On February 25th at 6:00pm, you can join Becky as she guides participants through the process. Our class size is small and will likely fill up fast. Call the library or stop in to sign up. There is NO charge for this program! Masks are required and we practice safe distancing

Craft Class: Ceramic Rabbit– With some paint, ribbons, and flowers, these sweet bunnies will add charm to your Easter decor! There is an no fee to cover the cost of materials. There is room for 15 participants on Thursday, March 18th at 6:00pm.
