Crafting for Kids in Partnership with the Northumberland County Council for the Arts & Humanities

We had quite a fun time at the library this morning crafting pumpkins, corn, and spiders just in time for October! A very big thank you goes to Jeanne Shaffer and the Northumberland County Council for the Arts & Humanities for partnering with us to make programs like this possible. Be sure to keep an eye out for future events!

Pumpkin Floral Craft

We hope everyone that attended our recent craft sessions had a wonderful time creating floral pumpkin décor items. Each group produced some very creative designs that can now be proudly displayed all through the season!
