The first SnackChat of the summer for those in grade 7th and up is on Monday evening June 26th. We'll be repurposing art in the "Pollock" style - this will be a collaborative art project that will then hang in the Library. We'll also eat some snacks and chat. You do not need to be an artist (but hey, we're all artists) to attend and contribute to this event. No registration necessary.

Project Linus Blankets

Monday, July 31, 2023 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

The sure-fire way to make yourself feel better is to help others in need. We'll be doing that at the Project Linus Blankets program. We'll be making fleece tie blankets with assistance from the Waupaca County Home Educators and then we'll send them to a Project Linus chapter in Wisconsin. These blankets will then be given to children facing life threatening and chronic illnesses. This program is open for those in 7th grade and up. No registration is necessary. Snacks will be served. (After we're done making the blankets!)
