Save the date: our Craft Supplies Give and Take is coming soon!

 Our first ever Friends of the Library sponsored craft supply swap, a free-will “donate what it’s worth to you” event, was held in 2023, with great success. It was an experiment in recycling – with the idea of one person’s trash becoming another person’s treasure. It worked. We were able to keep all of these treasures out of the landfill and get them into the hands of people who wanted them, all the while raising money to fund some of your favorite programs at the library.

 Friday afternoon’s four hours of donation intake was fast and furious, so in 2024 we’ve increased the hours so donations can be made from 10 am to 4 pm on Friday, April 19. The fee-will donation sales are open from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday April 20 and from 12:15 pm to 4 pm on Sunday, April 22. This year, any very valuable items (like sewing machines) will have a minimum, but still VERY affordable donation assigned to them.

 What do we accept as donations of craft supplies? Well, if someone bought it to make a craft if any kind, it’s acceptable. We only ask that you not bring items that have become musty or moldy from time in a garage or cellar, or have been stored in close proximity to a heavy smoker. We can ONLY accept materials donation on April 19th because we have no place to store them.

 If you have questions or you would like to volunteer to help with intake/setup, the event itself, or cleanup, email us at folcrafterssuppliesgandt@gmail.com
