You know you have to stop by the library anyway because that BIG project is due Monday, so why not take a study break and create something fun? All projects make use of "upcycling", so they're both fun and environmentally friendly. These programs are drop-in only, so be sure to get here early! 

12/6: Magazine Trees: This puts a creative and "green" spin on the traditional holiday decoration. We'll show you how to fold old magazines into trees, which you can then decorate, or leave plain and simple.

1/3: Decorate a Tote Bag: While cleaning out a cupboard for last Spring’s big renovation, we discovered a bunch of really cool blank canvas tote bags. All they need is to be decorated—by YOU! Stop by the Teen department and have a go.

2/7: Decorate a Mask: February is Mardi Gras! So what better way to celebrate than to make a mask, using a plain simple mask base, craft supplies and your imagination.
