Feeling crafty?

Posted on July 14, 2020

The library offers a lot more than books and movies these days.  Maker programs and spaces provide ways for young and old to develop and nurture your own creative talents.  Best thing? They are all free, hands-on DIY fun!

Craft Pack Programs

For those with an artistic bent, our craft pack programs give you an idea and all the supplies you need to create something for yourself. Projects range from fanciful to functional. There is a different project every time. Storytime craft packs are for the preschool set; Take & Make for those over 18; and tween maker packs for those in between.  For specific dates, check out our monthly program calendar.

Tinkering Programs

We are training young inventors with tinkering programs every Wednesday. In academic terms, tinkering is a hands-on, trial and error-based process of teaching kids to be persistent, resourceful, and self-sufficient –- all skills needed in our technology-driven world!  Interested in learning more? Check out our LEGO club and Creation Station programs!

Berryville Library Craft Blog

Too busy to even get to the library? Let our craft ideas come to you, wherever and whenever you need them!  Check out Mary-Esther’s craft blog here.

On this blog she shares lots of templates for toddler-friendly crafts but also ideas and templates for crafts for other ages, and seasonal wall décor. Why scour Pinterest for hours when you can get tons of craft ideas with just one click?

Literacy in the 21st Century

Reading, writing, and arithmetic are only the start of the skills people need in the 21st century. Let the library help you tap into your creativity, curiosity, and inventive problem-solving skills with our making programs.

In the words of our artistic CEO (that’s Mary-Esther for those of you in the know😊),

As a hub of creativity and community, the Berryville Library aims to help individuals of all ages tap talents and have fun. Crafting is a big part of this. By giving kids opportunities to make and create on a regular basis, we hope we are doing our best to inspire a future generation of makers and doers, as well as dreamers and readers.

For more information about any of these programs or opportunities, please visit our library calendar, email us at [email protected], or call (870) 423-2323.  We’d love to talk craft with you!
