Sign-up starts Sept 7 for Magnet Board Crafternoon
Kids are starting school any day now, and that means the calendar will be filling up. The Fond du Lac Public Library Crafternoon program has a solution: Make a handy message board to get the gang’s attention. Crafters will have supplies provided to make one board and three magnets from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 21. Space is limited, and registration is required beginning 9 a.m. September 7 at the Calendar, or by calling the Help Desk at (920) 322-3929.
Crafternoon takes place every third Saturday of the month with a different make-and-take project for adults and teens in middle school and older. Supplies provided. 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.”
