Now is your chance to learn the craft of paper quilling. Library staff Delphine Williams will provide basic instruction on how to roll specially prepared paper into paper quill designs. Participants will be able to create a hand designed card.
Put your culinary creativity to work this summer with foods you buy at the Forest Park Farmer’s Market, or other local farmer’s market! We are looking for tasty, nutritious recipes baked or cooked with local natural ingredients.
Present your best item with a printed recipe at the beginning of the program to be judged by local food experts. Prepare enough for at least three judges to taste (more to share if you can). First, second, and third prizes will be awarded.
To submit an entry, please sign-up online or with a librarian. All ages.
This program will help children discover themselves through full scale portraits. Children will be creating life size self portraits by tracing themselves on large paper. They can then decorate, paint or collage their self portraits with a variety of craft supplies provided, including fabrics, yarn, markers, paint, crayons, colored pencils etc.
