Library Craft Night

August means the Library Craft Night, and this year it will be held August 6 at 6:30 pm, weather permitting, in the Gazebo (fingers crossed).  In staying with our theme of going to the moon, crafts will be space based.  All ages are welcome, but fair warning, crafts are aimed at the kiddos.  The event is free.

And if you should have some around the house, the library could use some jars, with lids for one of the crafts planned.

To register (not necessary, but appreciated) or if you have any questions, contact the library at 926-4840.
