March is National Craft Month. The Library is a great place to learn a new craft. We have books on all crafts from sewing to painting. We also have many crafting groups that meet here at the Library in the Community Room: Dreamweavers Basket Guild, Tuesday Threaders (Quiliting), American Needlepoint Guild, Cloth Souls Doll Club, Tri-County Artists, and The Paint Company.
