Meditative Monday: Crafting with Plarn

4/12/2021  6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Let’s unwind together while winding our own plarn (plastic yarn). Sometimes making your materials can be just as crafty as what you do with them. Gather those grocery bags and a pair of scissors to upcycle this great material! Registration is required. Grades 2 and up are welcome. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library services and the State Library of Ohio.

Kids Create and Read-At Home!

4/13/2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Take storytime home with you! Sign up for one of our storytime kits, which will include a book to check out and art project. While each kit's theme does match our weekly storytime (held via Zoom at 10am on Wednesdays), the storytime kits do NOT have a set meeting time. They are intended to be independent take-home activities. Kits will be offered weekly through October and November and are intended for preschoolers - 1st graders. They are generously funded by the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center. Registration is required.
