Adult Crafting Class

Yesterday evening an adult crafting class was held at the library and produced some magnificent results! All those that attended were able to take home a personalized piece of fall d├ęcor just in time for the fast approaching fall season.

A special thanks goes to Jeanne Shaffer and Joyce Sickora of the Northumberland County Council for the Arts & Humanities for partnering with the library for this event!
