at Home

While we’d love to gather at the Library for crafts and warm beverages, this year we have to take comfort at home. To help inspire and keep you busy, we’ve compiled an 8-week craft series to ‘take and make’ at home. Kits contain the materials needed for each craft, however, a few crafts tools will require some self-provided supplies.

Crafts will be available each week on Monday starting January 18th through March 8th. Kits are limited and you must register. Currently, registration is limited to a maximum of 4 crafts, but you may sign up for the waitlist for additional crafts. Register in the box below by clicking on the image of the crafts or call the Library at 315.655.9322. We will email you a registration confirmation. These crafts are designed for ages 13+. 

All craft material sponsored by the Friends of the Library
