Creation Station Print
Active ImageWhat will you create?

Visit the Creation Station during the month of September to use the pony beads to construct several different projects. The beads are available in a multitude of colors and good for making such things as bracelets, necklaces, small creatures and many more.

The Creation Station is a do-it-yourself space where users are encouraged to experiment. The space features different gadgets or tools each month.

Just stop at the front desk with your library card to check out the materials and you are ready to begin creating. All ages are welcome, although children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. There is no cost involved. (And library staff are available to help if you encounter any problems.)
