Program Description

Event Details

Our DIY community is invited to continue making projects together as our Make and Take series moves into the virtual world! This month’s project is wildflower lanterns. We will all use common materials we have around the house and follow an instructional video available through CreativeBug, a website you can access for free with your library card. Make your project anytime, then join your fellow Make & Take crowd for a show-and-tell style meetup via Zoom. 

When you register for this event, we will email you a link to a Zoom meeting. If you need any help, please send us an email at

  1. Register for this event.
