Tie-Dye Night – Thursday, August 28th!

Join us for the last library event of the summer! Due to the overwhelming success of the first tie-dye program of the summer, we are closing out our summer programming with Tie-Dye Revisited! This is great fun for kids and adults! The cooler weather will be approaching so this is a good time to make a long sleeve t-shirt or sweatshirt or warm socks! Bring whatever item you would like to dye to the library on Thursday night and be creative with all the great colors available.
Please register for this event by stopping in at the library, calling us at 283-3721, or sending a message via Facebook or Twitter!
We hope to see you there!
