Teen Time @ the Library - Felties!
Wednesday, May 7th 3:00 pm
Bring your friends and relax at the library. Play games, talk about your favorite books, or make the monthly DIY project. This month's project: Felties! Sew your own felt creatures.
Earn Community Service Hours!
Walk with the library at the Holland Happening Parade, and you can earn 3 hours of community service. It’s easy, fun, and there will be doughnuts! Every year the library walks in the parade, and you can show your love for the library with us. This year’s parade is on Saturday, April 26th. Meet at the library at 9:45 am to first enjoy your doughnut. We head down to the parade lineup at 10:00 am, and the parade starts at 11:00. We’re usually finished by 1:00 pm, at the Ace Hardware parking lot. Let me know if you’d like to come along, and bring a friend!
