If you didn't know, school starts Monday!! For Franklin County Library the first day of school means a shift from our Summer Reading Program to new and varied events for both kids and adults.
First up this fall is an Arts and Crafts show. Beginning September 2nd through September 12th, we will be displaying arts and crafts from members of the community. This means YOU! If you have anything you consider artsy or crafty you would like to display please bring it to us. We will make sure your name and contact information is on it and you can pick it up on the 12th. Anything from quilts to needlework, painting to scrapbooking, woodworking to metalworking to jewelry will be great! We already have a gentleman who is going to display fiddles that he has hand carved.
In conjunction with the Arts and Crafts show, on Thursday, September 11th, we will be having a Craft Supply Swap. You can bring your extra supplies (i.e. fabric, paint, thread, needles, etc) and go home with new ones! We have done this before with plants, but never craft supplies. It should be a lot of fun.
Beginning September 16th, we will begin a fall series of Computer Classes. The classes are at 5:30 and will cover topics such as Excel, Social Media, Apps, and Jobs and Resumes. Class size is limited, so please call the library (903-537-4916) to reserve your spot.
Beginning September 8th, we will resume Marvelous Mondays! Every Monday that school is in session, we will have a short activity for kids at 4:15. We conduct science experiments and create crafts. The activities usually last about 15 minutes. I've already been working on new activities for this year!
It looks like the Fall is going to be busy at Franklin County Library. Come on in and see what we're doing!
