Mothers are everywhere, and yet they only get one day a year for recognition of all their hard work. Hopefully you recognize all the positive female figures in your life all year round, but what will you do for this special day?
If you need to make mom a special gift, we highly recommend our database for all things crafty, Creativebug. Creativebug has how-to tutorials for all types of gifts, and you can use the search bar to search by a supply, like "paper," so you can dream up something to do with supplies you already have. There's also tutorials on gift wrapping if you already bought a gift. We also have some tutorials available on past blogs, including a DIY photo board, and a card craft
Of course, if she's a fan of our libraries, you can always bring her to a branch on her special day--the Headquarters, Alachua, Hawthorne, High Springs, Millhopper, Newberry, and Tower Road branches are all open on Sundays from noon to 5 PM. If your motherly figure is interested in eBooks, but doesn't know where to start, our staff can give her advice on how to get started with our eBook service OverDrive, with its app, Libby.
Finally, if you need a good book to read on your Mother's Day, we, of course, have a few suggestions. Click the titles to find them in the catalog, and either check availability or place a hold.
