Back by popular demand are the monthly Adult/Teen Craft Kits. We were a little late on getting our supplies so they didn’t come out the beginning of the month like we wanted, but January’s Adult/Teen Craft Kits are now available! This month’s offering is a simple but fun Coloring Page Coaster. Coloring page designs and detail level vary. Craft kits are available in the BLUE crate outside the library’s 5th St. entrance during all of the library’s open hours. Please take only one craft kit per person. And while these crafts are simple enough to be completed by children, please leave the adult/teen crafts for the adults/teens and take the children’s craft kits for children.*****Please note that you will need a foam brush and Mod Podge to complete this craft, which are not included in the kits. However, if you do not have these items at home, a limited number of these supplies are available to you at no charge from the library if you call 815-589-2045 and request them.*****
