Young adults in sixth through twelfth grade are invited to participate in MovieMakers at the library. The group will meet on Wednesday, April 2nd from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.

iCraft: Sculptamold Bowls
Sculptamold bowls are the project for this month’s iCraft program. Participants will use Sculptamold, a product that combines the best features of clay, plaster, and papier maché, to create a catchall bowl. Bring a bowl from home as a mold for your new creation (nothing valuable please!)
This project will be held in two sessions on Wednesday, April 23rd and Wednesday, April 30th, both at 6:00 p.m.
The library will provide the Sculptamold compound for the first session and metallic paint for the second session. We’ll also have refreshments and music to keep you going.
iCraft programs are open to anyone in sixth grade through adult and limited to 30 participants. Please register for iCraft by calling the library at (620) 231-8110.

It Came From The Library!

Young adults were responsible for writing the script, make-up, costumes, filming, and video editing. Because it was so good, we ended up with several versions.
