Have you seen the blanket on our Youth Department couch? Check it out! It was made entirely by kids here at the library. Continue the tradition, and contribute to our next creation, by stopping by to try out Angela’s Structo Loom that’s over 100 years old. A great project for developing hand-eye coordination, and easy enough for toddlers to try!
