For the kids’ crafts, families can call our Children’s Department at 440-255-8811 ext. 220 to request a craft kit before picking it up at our Main Branch. The Grab & Go crafts are perfect for kids of all ages with a new craft available each Monday. The kits include directions and supplies for a simple craft that families can do together.

Meanwhile, teens and adults can also get their own Make & Take crafts. You’ll be able to pick up a different craft each Thursday, starting June 18. Our first craft will be vinyl earrings that you can make yourself. Register in advance to reserve your craft kit, because supplies are limited. Once you’ve reserved your kit, you can pick it up from the reference desk at our Main Branch.

The craft kits are, of course, free. Make sure to pick them up while supplies last.
