Take & Make Crafts for Adults

Featured

Bertolet Memorial Library is now offering take home craft kits for adults and/or family. The kits provide the materials and instructions needed to make a craft. It’s a great opportunity to be creative and de-stress at the same time. Our first kit, available now at the library, includes everything you need to make a wish bracelet. A new kit will be available the first Wednesday of each month. First come, first serve.
