DIY Holidays at the Library


While we love fall, it’s one season that always seems to pass us by. One minute we’re heading back to school, and the next we’re surrounded by holiday décor, music, and sales.  It’s that time of year when we suddenly find ourselves asking, “How is it November already?” If the thought of holiday shopping and to-do lists sends you into a tailspin, you’re not alone. This season, skip the crowds, stress, and spending, and head to the library! From cards and gifts, to décor and food, we’re offering several programs to help make it a handmade holiday.
