“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” -Dr. Seuss
The MakerSpace area of the library is officially up and running! This area was designed specifically for children between the ages of 10 and 18. The MakerSpace area includes various craft supplies and idea cards that prompt users to make a wide variety of fun crafts (some examples are obstacle courses, parachute men, animals, etc.!). We also have Strawbees available for use, just ask a library staff member! Strawbees are straws that can be put together to make anything! A house, animal, samurai sword, the possibilities are truly endless!
We are putting the final touches on our STEAM kits and plan to have these available for checkout mid-March!

Spring break for Chester County Schools will be March 23-27. We encourage children to come to the library and checkout books, STEAM kits, or utilize our MakerSpace area.
