"Make and Take" a project to do at home!
Since July, we've handed out over 1,000 Make and Take craft kits! This month, you can choose from one of three festive wreaths, pictured below, to make and display at home. Wreaths make fun gifts, too! If you're feeling up to it, you can request the material for all three wreaths! Our staff would like to thank the Friends of the Acushnet Public Library for generously providing the material for the wreaths. Kits can be picked up during Takeout beginning Monday, 12/7.
Later in the month, we'll be offering another project, geared towards school-aged kids. Please watch our Facebook page for details.
Check out the December challenges in Beanstack!
Acushnet readers, you have outdone yourselves! Since June 2020, you have logged over 120,000 minutes of reading, surpassing every new goal we've created. For December, staff have added two new challenges, complete with their own badges and book recommendations. Click either image below to sign up and get started today. Watch for new challenges and goals in 2021!
