ICPL Arts & Crafts Supply Swap

Are you someone who loves arts and crafts? Do you have extra supplies just taking up space in your home? If so, you won't want to miss the ICPL Arts & Crafts Supply Swap taking place on Saturday, March 4, 2023.

Before the big event, there will be an opportunity to donate your extra supplies. If you have any still-usable art or craft supplies that you want to donate, this is your chance to get them into the hands of someone who can use them. This is a perfect opportunity to clear out your craft room and declutter your home. You can bring your donations to the Library on Friday, March 3, from 12:30 to 8 p.m. in Meeting Room A.

Items that will be accepted for donation include:

The ICPL Arts & Crafts Supply Swap is a great way to find usable supplies and try out a new craft. Any leftover items from the Swap will be donated to a good cause, either The Crowded Closet or Goodwill. Library staff will also select some supplies to keep for Summer Reading Program activities.
