Make market bags from T-shirts!

Have a favorite t-shirt you can’t wear anymore or more t-shirts than you need? Bring any t-shirt and a sharp pair of scissors to library and make a bag that is perfect for shopping! On Wednesday, 5/30 from 5-7pm and Thursday, 5/31 from 2-4pm, Lianne will help you cut up your t-shirt and make a fun and useful tote bag. One of our library families has made many of these bags and I see them being used at the Farmers’ Market all summer. Drop in any time during the stated times to make your bag.
