Do you have a lot of unused craft supplies gathering dust in storage? Have you ever wanted to try a new craft, but didn't want to splurge on expensive materials? Then come to the Library's Craft Supply Exchange! Bring in your unused fabric, yarn, scrapbook paper, and whatever other crafting supplies you no longer need, and share them with other crafters! You just might find the supplies you need to create your next crafting masterpiece! Any supplies leftover after the program will be donated to the library and to local organizations in need of crafting supplies.

You can bring in supplies to donate in advance of the program by dropping them off at the Reference Desk, or bring them to the Craft Supply Exchange on the day of.
