Dear Wonderful Patrons, Are you a crafting enthusiast? Join us for our Crafters Group Meet and Greet on Sunday, December 10 from 1-3pm. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect, share ideas, and maybe even participate in our optional yarn swap – bring any misfit or extra yarn from your stash to exchange with others! See “Stay Tuned…” for further information. Join me for Story Time on Tuesday mornings from 10:30-11am. Listen to a story, sing some songs, enjoy some felt board fun, and participate in a craft. Stuffies usually make an appearance! Try a challenge or free build during Lego Club on Sunday afternoons. All ages are welcome. Lego Club is from 1-3pm but you may arrive and leave at your leisure within this time frame. Feel free to join one or more Lego Clubs as your schedule allows. (There is no Lego Club on Sunday, December 10 due to the Crafters Group Meet and Greet). If you would like to craft at another time, join me for “Bring-your-own-craft” night on Thursday, December 21 from 6:30-7:30pm. (This is a monthly program on the third Thursday of the month). If you have thought about writing your memoir, join Lorraine Lindstedt at one or both of the memoir writing workshops via Zoom from 6:30-8:30pm on January 10 and January 31, 2024. (There is no meeting this month). Continue reading to hear the latest news and events from the West Buxton Public Library. Thank you for your support and I hope to see you at the library soon.
