SKOWHEGAN – The local library has a series of winter activities designed to get locals out of their homes.
The local women’s Semper Fidelis Club sponsors library crafts. The first class is Jan. 10 and will feature making jewelry with wire wrapping. Introduction to watercoloring follows that on Jan. 24.
“We try to host as many programs in the winter as we can so people get out of the house, and be social and just try to have fun,” said Breanna Bussell, a Skowhegan librarian.
The crafting series is free for participants. The first class in February is on Valentine’s Day and will be cake decorating.
The library also hosts a number of other events for children, including a story time, Lego club and board game gatherings. Check out the library’s Facebook page to get more details.
