Adult Crafternoon Print
Active ImageCalling all crafty people — and even those not so crafty but who just want to have some free fun.

Creative adults are invited to join us at the library for our monthly Adult Crafternoon designed just for you. We meet at 1 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon each month in the meeting room and make a different craft each time.

Attendees on Dec. 13 will have the opportunity to make a Rustic Holiday Tree. All supplies — and instruction — will be provided.

Please plan to join us each month. And if you have any ideas for upcoming crafts, please contact Adult Services Coordinator Amanda Johnson with your suggestion.

Making Terrariums Print
Active ImageLooking for a unique holiday gift for that special someone? Or looking to make a new decoration for yourself?

The library has just the program for you. A representative from Niche Terrariums will be instructing 25 lucky people on how to make their own Christmas Tree Terrarium at 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 14.

The program is free and all materials are provided, but because we have to limit it to 25 people, registration is required. Anyone 16 years of age and older can register by calling (937.783.3585) or visiting the library.

For more information, contact Adult Services Coordinator Amanda Johnson at 937.783.3585.

Monday Night Movies Print
Active Image Get in the holiday mood with our next Monday Night Movie, The Muppet Christmas Carol, on Dec. 11.

The Disney classic will begin at 5 p.m. in the library meeting room.

The free family-oriented movie showings also include free pizza, popcorn and drinks.

Join the furry, funny creatures as they retell the Charles Dickens tale in which miser Ebenezer Scrooge learns the true meaning of Christmas and reforms his heartless and money-grubbing ways after being visited on Christmas Eve by four ghosts.

For more information, visit the library or call 937.783.3585.

Visit the library and grab a free bag, which also includes detailed instructions.

These will be available through Christmas.
