To celebrate the holiday season, the James V. Brown Library wants to help your children come up with the perfect homemade holiday gifts. Registrations are now open for winter gift-making classes for kids of different age groups and interests.

Everyone loves to receive a homemade gift made from the loving hands of a child. Children are encouraged to make two gifts: one to take home and give away to a family member or friend, and one will go into a gift bag at the library that will be given away in the community.

Programs include:

Early Childhood (birth to age 5)

School Age Holiday Gift Programs (grades K-6)

Tweens and Teens (grades 3 and up)

While it may seem like just arts and crafts, these programs provide educational play and literary components to create opportunities to learn language, science, math, and technology, as well as share traditions.

Programming information and registration is accessible via the library’s online calendar or by clicking on “Programming” on the main site for a breakdown by ages and grade levels.
