Craft Night in the Lab

Monday 1/24, 7-8:30pm, Digital Media Lab

Bring your own portable craft and make some progress in the company of other makers.  We’ll also have supplies for adults and teens to make some free shrinky dinks and/or 2.25” buttons! If you've never made shrinky dinks or known the satisfaction of cranking out a perfect, glossy button, you're in for a treat!  Registration is not required.

Working Smarter on Your Computer

Let’s take a look at some tips and tricks to make your computer experiences easier! You’ll try out keyboard shortcuts, get more familiar with your web browser, know how to always find your downloads, and brush up on typing documents in Microsoft Word. We’ll use the library’s Windows PCs.  Suitable for all skill levels but ideal for people with some computer experience. Registration is not required.
