Teen/Tween Take & MakesCreate

Each month a new Take & Make craft is set out in the Teen Services area. Drop by and pick up an envelope containing all you'll need for a 'do-at-home' craft. Basic supplies such as glue and scissors will not be included in the craft envelopes. Pick them up early so you don't miss out! Take & Make crafts are free, courtesy of the Friends of the Gates Public Library!
