April Crafternoon: Storybook Birdhouse

Using a wooden birdhouse, upcycled children's books and lots of glue, you can create a one-of-a-kind indoor decoration at the 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 20 Crafternoon program, Storybook Birdhouse. The program for adults and children in middle school and older at the Fond du Lac Public Library is free, but space is limited.

Crafternoon is a free program every third Saturday with a different make-and-take project each month. It was inspired by a similar program at the New York Public Library that’s run by Maura Madden, who wrote, “Crafternoon: A Guide to Getting Artsy and Crafty with Your Friends All Year Long.”
