Suwannee Library Technical Center hosted weekly craft afternoons for children in the community of Suwannee last summer.
Held every Wednesday from mid-June through the end of July, the two-hour events were enjoyed almost as much by the moms and grandmoms as the children themselves. We had a great time with crafts such as making puffy slime, tie-dying t-shirts, rock painting, and cupcake decorating. Our focus was on creativity and invention, in keeping with this year’s nationwide Summer Reading Program “Build a Better World.”
Suwannee Library Technical Center, located at 21340 SE Hwy 349 (adjacent to the Suwannee Fire Department in Glen Dyals Park), is part of the Dixie County Public Library. Each year libraries across the country look for ways to encourage readership among young people through a summer reading program.
Suwannee Library will host three more craft events for children this fall. These will be held on the following Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. - 12 noon: September 16 (craft to be announced); October 28 (Halloween crafts); and October 18 (Holiday crafts and gift making).
