Adults are welcome to join us for the monthly “Get Crafty” session on the first Monday of the month at the Harrisville branch (second Monday during holiday weeks).  A craft or art project is offered for those who enjoy a new art experience.  We are honored to have local artists and crafters share their talents with us, and help us keep the costs down to a small materials & refreshment fee.  Must register for all events:  call 989-724-6796.

We’re always looking for new projects; call Lynn or Jan at 989-724-6796 if you have an art or craft project to share.

The Alcona County Library invites the community to a New Year’s charity project to make “plarn” (plastic yarn) out of plastic grocery bags, which then will be crocheted into waterproof mats for the homeless.  This event will take place at the Harrisville branch on Monday, January 8, 2018 from 11 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  Attendees will need to bring scissors to cut plastic bags into strips, which will then be rolled into balls of “plarn.”  Plastic bags supplied, but you are welcome to bring bags to increase the inventory.  Those who crochet may wish to bring a 10 mm crochet hook.  Sample mat is on display at the Harrisville branch.  Refreshments provided; no registration required.  For more information, call 989-724-6796.
