Take & Make Crafts for Adults
September | Autumn Tree Painting

Crafting is not just for kids. Adults can benefit from crafting too! While we can’t offer in-person programs, we can offer them through our convenient Lithgow-to-Go Service. Each Take & Make comes with directions and materials to create your very own project. See Here’s how it works. We’ll  announce each monthly project in our newsletter & kits will be available early that month.  Come to the library during business hours to pick up your kit. Kits are limited, so it’s a good idea to call ahead & ensure they are still available.
