Gettin' Crafty

While thoughts of winter’s end and the first buds of spring are called to mind when you think of March, it is usually still too cold to go out and do those fun spring-time activities.  However with spring fever firmly set in, what can you do with those little ones (and perhaps not so little ones) who are getting bored and antsy?  You’re in luck!  March also happens to be National Craft Month, which is a perfect excuse to break out the glue, glitter and some creativity.  Established in 1994 by the Craft and Hobby Association to help people learn about and re-discover the joy of crafting, it has grown into an international celebration of creativity and innovation with millions of craft enthusiasts ‘getting their craft on’ during the month.
Running low on crafty ideas?  Don’t worry, we have you covered!  Looking for something to do with the kids?  We have a variety of craft books ranging from everyday crafts, cultural themed crafts, and even activity guides with craft ideas that teach about the ancient Egyptians (and their neighbors), ancient Greeks and even early American pioneers.

Perhaps you’re looking to learn a new craft or skill yourself?  We have seemly endless volumes of books on various handicrafts, from making decorations and keepsakes for your wedding, gifts for someone expecting a baby, jewelry making and various craft encyclopedias filled with ideas for every season and theme imaginable.  You know, the definition of craft not only pertains to “arts and crafts” but also trade skills.  Perhaps you would enjoy expanding your skill set to include carpentry, landscaping, metal working, or even candlemaking. 

We have everything you need to refresh your skills, learn new ones, or just share some favorite ones with a child or loved one.  So swing on by your local branch, we’ll be glad to help you ‘get your craft on’.
