Do you knit? Crochet? Want to learn? This is fun challenge for Teens, Adults, and Seniors to do during these crazy times. These cactus plants don't require watering (which is perfect for me) and can be useful (you can use them as pin-cushions, paperweights...or???) Email Diana at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to request the pattern to make one of your own.
For more information please send an email to email@example.com. If you would like to be notified of upcoming programs and events please ask to be added to our Youth Programming mailing list (send an email to address listed above!)
Our next meeting will be held VIRTUALLY on Tuesday June 9th from 1-2pm (and will continue every week until regular library services resume.) To join us please send an email to Diana McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org so she can add you to the online meeting group (we are using MSTeams for this.) Bring yourself, something you are working on, and/or a completed project you would like to share with the group. All knitters, crocheters, or yarn-crafters are invited to attend.
Check out this online offering by Diana! It is scheduled to happen on Saturday June 27th from 1-3pm...but if you can't join then- don't panic!

We have had an A.E.D. device installed here in the library thanks to the PAD program and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Unlike those at the Community Hall and the Curling Rink; this one is only available during the open hours at the Library, but can be taken off-site in an emergency.
We have a Youth Services email list that parents/caregivers may sign up for so that they can be kept informed about upcoming Children's programs and events. See staff to sign up or send us an email asking to be added: firstname.lastname@example.org!
