This year we cannot host our annual Holiday Festival in person, so we are bringing the Holiday Festival to you! While we would love to get together and visit with you all, we are doing the next best thing by sharing some fun holiday crafts for you to make at home.
We found 12 festive crafts to make, and books to go along with each of them. Every book below is available to request from the library, click here to log in and request one.
