ATTENTION CRAFTERS: We want your unwanted or unused craft supplies. We will be having our first ever Craft Swap April 7, 2022. This is a chance for crafters to bring in unwanted but usable items and get different items for FREE. A win for both your budget and the environment! This swap is a way to create a local economy of sharing, get to know fellow crafters, learn new techniques, and clean out your stash. This is a trade situation; money will not change hands and there will be no selling of craft items allowed. This is meant to be a fun, free day of sharing and goodwill among crafters.
We will be collecting clean, gently used items that are in working condition from smoke-free homes. Items from pet friendly homes should be designated as such to accommodate people with allergies. Items can be brought to the library anytime through Monday, April 4, 2022. We prefer larger donations be brought into the library and not put through the book drop. Any items left outside will be disposed of.
Those who donate will be given a VIP ticket for a first chance to gather new items. You can get your VIP ticket when you donate. VIP tickets are not transferable and will allow donor entrance into the swap only from 5:00 – 6:00 pm, April 7. Other attendants will be allowed into the swap from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
Each attendant will be given one bag to fill. No outside totes or bags are allowed. If enough items are left over after the initial swap a second chance will be given on April 8 starting at 10:00 am. Any leftover items will be used by the library for story hour crafts or donated. Please contact the library, 785-336-2377, with any questions.
