 This month’s craft kit will be a Bubble Bracelet.  Kits can be picked up at the library; please call 574-353-7234 or 574-551-9007 to reserve yours.  Kits will be available by August 17th (colors will vary).   There will be a limited supply, so it’s on a first come, first serve basis.   This will be posted to both our website and our Facebook page, search for Bell Memorial Public Library.   If you decide to participate and create the craft project at home, please share a picture of your completed craft with us on our Facebook page.  We’d love to see what you are doing!  

Happy Crafting!
