Next in our series of fun stuff to do without us, Programs to Go!
On the third Thursday of each month, we’ll offer a take home project pack complete with instructions and all the supplies you’ll need along with a display of related books at the YA reference desk.
You have to take a book to get a project. Ms. Becky has worked super hard to be sure there are a wide selection of both non-fiction and fiction books for you to choose from so you’re sure to find one you’ll enjoy.
Can’t check out books? No worries, we have alternative options for you!
And now, drum roll please, for our first ever Program to Go!

It’s fun. It’s trending. There’s no wrong way to do it.
So, got back to school and show your sass!

Swing by YA – say hello (or just wave) – grab a project and a book – go home (or to a friend’s) and have fun!
