    • Creative Kids: Held on the third Tuesday of each month from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Kids ages 3-12 years can join Miss Dianne to make feather-stamped owls in November, a gingerbread house ornament in December, create snowflake art in January and decorate your own hot cocoa mug in February.

    • Craftnology: Patrons of all ages can drop-in between 10 a.m. to noon and join the Library's Technology Educator on the third Saturday morning of each month for this program that combines techy with crafty! Make a tree ornament for your Christmas tree using our 3D pen in December. (We will offer additional special sessions of this craft on December 19 from 3 - 6 pm & December 20 from 1 to 3 p.m.). In  January, Make your own buttons. In February, come make a bot toothbrush.(This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the State Library of Ohio.)
