Spring has Sprung (Maybe)

It's beginning to feel like spring. The library pear tree is in full bloom. Thoughts of gardens with flowers and vegetables are on our minds. The library has many books on both. Be inspired by the pictures and have fun.

National Craft Month

There are crafts for every taste. From very simple to complex and detailed. They can be lots of fun, used to entertain children, to showcase a family history, to hang out with friends, crochet or knit gifts for family or yourself. The library has ideas and books on many different crafts. Have fun learning something new or spending time with a craft you already know.
