Getting into Nature: Take and Make for Adults, Teens and Kids

Wednesday, June 30

10:00 am - 7:00 pm

This summer we are getting back to basics with a series of Take and Makes for all ages! The last Wednesday of every month the Blackstone Library will drop a different nature based creation through our new crafting resource known as CreativeBug. Those interested are welcome to pick-up a Take and Make bag filled with the necessary materials in our library vestibule. Then watch the videos we link through CreativeBug at your leisure to make something connected to nature.

Registration for this activity is not required but pick-up will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Kits will be clearly marked in the library’s vestibule and you will be required to wear a mask when you enter the building. No-contact pick up times are between 10AM-7PM.

Kits are made possible by the Allan Louise Loeb Foundation
