Everyone knows it’s the “season of giving” and at the library it’s also the season of making, exploring and snuggling in with a great holiday read.
Holiday magic in the lab kicked off in November with adults making countdown calendars of laser-cut wood. The magic continues on December 2 with an invite for all ages to come make Cards for Hospitalized Kids using our extensive collection of tools and papercrafting supplies. Holiday ornament making happens on either Dec 7 or Dec 10. Makers can explore the capabilities of our lab equipment, including the Glowforge laser engraver and Sawgrass sublimation printer to design your very own one-of-a-kind ornaments of wood, acrylic, or plastic. Finally, you can give the gift of life with a blood donation on Dec 21. Visit redcrossblood.org and use the code plylibrary or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
Kids and teens ages 10 and up can help us make the Teen Zone more festive and cozy by painting winter-themed art on our windows on the evening of Dec 14. All ages will have fun exploring a display of LEGO models by the Michigan LEGO Users Group during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, December 26-28.
Book browsers and movie watchers will want to check out the annual displays of holiday movies and books. (Maybe you’ll want to check out Die Hard, and join the debate on whether or not this intense action pic should be considered a Christmas movie!)
