Lawrence Branch Adult Take-Out Craft

Take-out crafts will launch starting this March at the Lawrence Branch. While craft programs are continuously available at branches throughout the library system, take-out crafts will provide another way for patrons to express their creative side.

Take-out crafts will provide easy projects for adults and are fun for the beginner to the experienced crafter. With our busy schedules, it becomes more difficult to find some quiet time. With take-out crafts, it will become easier to carve out the few minutes needed. Crafting will have you forgetting about your worries and stress and provide you a little relaxing time.

Each take-out craft will be sure to fit everyone’s style and skill set. Bi-monthly in-library craft options will touch upon a different theme. It can be as simple or as complex as you see fit and can act as a creative outlet.

The take-out crafts will provide an additional way patrons can utilize the library. Some projects will work on new art and crafts techniques not experienced in the bi-monthly craft program. The projects being provided will be creative and unique. No experience necessary for any of the projects being offered!

Each month will focus on a different craft and can be found at the Lawrence Branch adult reference desk. The library provides all of the materials for a quick, simple project and the participant can take the craft home and work on their creation at their own pace. All instructions and materials will be provided.  If anything else is required we will indicate it on the kit, but will always be something you already have at home. No artistic skills required…just get crafty and have some fun!

Take-out craft being featured for March is Herbal Sachets:
