Your Abilene Public Library has been known for bringing people from all walks of life in the community together. Whether looking for books or attending library programs, accessing the Internet or reading the paper, there's something for everyone at your library. Starting in June, we're looking to add something a little more, in hopes of providing intergenerational programming for grandparents and grandchildren, in a summer crafting series.
This new program will be called Grandparent & Me Crafts and each month will feature a unique activity designed to bring people together for some family bonding at the library. This series is being hosted by Heather Carter and the lineup of activities this summer includes:
- Friday, Jun. 16 at 10:00AM: Making Birdfeeders | Staff will provide the supplies and materials necessary to show you how to build some birdfeeders for the summer.
- Friday, Jul. 21 at 10:00AM: Herb Starter Plants | This session is all about growing where staff will show you how to grow your own plants to start an herb garden.
- Friday, Aug. 11 at 10:00AM: Paper Lanterns | Come out and make, as well as decorate, cool paper lanterns together.
Keep the family ties between grandparent and grandchild strong by coming out to attend this engaging summer series designed to allow you to come together, have fun, create something, and share great experiences. There's no need to register, simply come out to the Main Library (202 Cedar St.) and participate in the fun.
