We have the space and a block of time you can use to color or work on any craft or creative project you would like. Coloring materials (sheets and pencils) will be provided, but we also invite you to work on any craft or creative projects you may have in progress in the library auditorium. Bring a couple of scrapbook pages, a pair of socks you started to knit, or grab a book on origami and give it a try. All crafters are welcome. We would love to see what you are working on! For ages 18 and over. Registration is requested. Limit 50 per session. Register below or call the Adult Reference Desk at (248) 246-3727.
