MARCH IS NATIONAL
Wow, a whole month devoted to crafting! If you’re already a crafter, vow to try a new craft. If you haven’t been crafting for awhile, pick up an old favorite. And if you’ve never crafted before, now is the time to start!
At the library, the 745.5 section is filled with craft books, both in the adult section and the children’s section (j745.5). The library has craft books for projects using specific materials such as paper, clay, CDs, and more.
Try out these titles for some general crafts or pick your own.
Check out these two programs for kids to be held in March. No registration is required, you can just show up!
What do you do after school? Choose something special!

TRAVEL KITS CAN TAKE YOU PLACES!
Planning a trip for Spring Break? Call the library before you go and request a travel kit. We promise not to make it too large to carry!
These kits are available for any child under 18 years of age. Let us know your destination, how long it will take you to get there, and with a few other details, we can tailor-make a kit to suit your needs!
Kits typically include books, stories on CD, and paper games and puzzles. We can provide background information about a location where you will be visiting, or it can all be just for fun. DVD can also be checked out by vacationers.
If you need an extra time to return items, ask at the desk to see if we can make it work for you.
Call 260-726-7890 now -- or at least several days in advance of your trip.
