Youth Crafts Every Week Through August:
The Pickaway County Library will offer a new Take & Make Craft every week this summer. Crafts are available for pickup at the Main Library in Circleville, the Younkin Branch Library in Ashville or at Bookmobile stops in Commercial Point, Williamsport and Tarlton.
The craft kit will change each Monday, but can be picked up any day of the week while supplies last. Kits include most of the materials needed to make the craft. Families will need to supply their own scissors, glue and coloring supplies. Instructions will be included in the kit plus instructional videos are available on the Pickaway County Library's YouTube channel.
Crafts center around the summer reading theme - "Imagine Your Story" - and are intended for grades 1-6 (but those are just suggested ages).
Week of July 27 - Fairy Cottage
Week of August 3 - Imagination Sun Catcher
Week of August 10 - Monster Pegs
Week of August 17 - Dragons
Week of August 24 - Pine Cone Fairies
Available on YouTube are the library's weekly how-to craft videos (supplies available for pickup each week at the library's curbside service). Also on YouTube are storytime activities, family challenges, and Couch To 5K program.
