Not too long ago we were thrilled to realize the addition of a Makerspace. This space is filled with mostly low-tech crafty stuff: crayons, coloring pencils, scissors, colored paper, markers, colored pipe cleaners, glue and all sorts of wacky doodads so that anyone (especially littles) can make stuff anytime they like. It is located in our meeting room/kitchen/quiet room area and can be used most anytime, unless there is a book club meeting or the like taking place there. This is also an area where visitors are free to snack and drink and often littles are very happy to nosh and craft at the same time. When the weather is disagreeable and you are feeling housebound, why not bring your little ones in to make use of this area. They might even end up with something worthy of being magnetized to your fridge afterward.
Fifth in a series. Watch for more great stuff from the library.
