In June, I posted about upcoming Crafternoons in August. Since they start next week, it’s time for a reminder. The events are starting to fill up but there’s still room to register.

The Library is hosting more craft sessions for older kids led by popular crafter Mandy Roberge. For each program registration is required with space limited to 15 participants.

The fun is all free, thanks to The Friends of the Southborough Library. The programs are mainly for teens, but the first one is also fine for tweens.

The Crafternoons will be held on three consecutive Wednesday afternoons in August, from 3:00 – 5:00 pm:
