The library offers countless ways to celebrate National Craft Month in March. Did you know that you can access Creativebug video courses for free with your library card? You can also attend in-person events at many of our library locations for a variety of craft and art projects. Join a crafting circle if you already know a skill, or learn something new at one of our classes.
