Storytime at the County Library
Take and Make Craft Kits
As if you needed another good reason to visit the Shenandoah County Library, we now have Take & Make Craft Kits! Two different kits are available each week: one basic craft for younger kids and beginning crafters, and one more advanced kit for crafters seeking more of a challenge. Kits are free but we do ask that you limit yourself to one kit per person, per week. All kits available while supplies last.
