Did you know that March is National Craft Month? Creating things is fun and so rewarding, no matter what your medium of choice is, and it isn’t just a pleasant way to pass the time. Research shows that crafting can have tangible health benefits! Crafting can improve your mood, reduce stress and anxiety, increase mindfulness, improve hand-eye coordination, and build problem solving skills. Seeing the finished product also gives you a little boost of pride and satisfaction. Who couldn’t use that in their life?
Grab your yarn, warm up your glue gun, sharpen your scissors, and sort your paint brushes. Let’s explore some of the craft books in our catalog!
Crafting with Nature
Needle Crafting and Sewing
Crafting doesn’t have to be a solitary activity. If you’d like to craft and meet new people at the same time, we have some craft programs on our event calendar this spring. On Monday, March 25th, come to the library and make a Spring Rag Wreath and on Monday, April 15, you can make an egg-shaped topiary in time for Easter. Registration is required for both of these programs; please visit our website to sign up.
