Youth Programs

What is Take it and Make it?

Every Monday, we’ll have new, fun kits for kids to “take” home and “make.” What’s inside the kit? You’ll get a newsletter of all the national holidays that happen during that week. We’ll pick a few fun holidays and create 2-3 crafts based on those holidays or events. You’ll get all the supplies and instructions too. The only supplies you might need from home are glue, tape, markers or crayons…and your creativity, of course! Kits are available on Monday in a limited quantity, but can be picked up any day. So, come to the library and grab your youth Take it and Make it kit.

Registration for youth programs open approximately 30 days before that program.
