Great Bend Public Library, 1409 Williams St., will offer craft activities for adults and teens in the coming week, YA/Marketing Librarian Jennifer King said.
Adults can make “Memory Lane Coasters” out of old maps at 2 p.m. this Saturday, June 7, and will have yet another chance to be creative during a crafting session at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 12. That project will be personalized plates. Pre-registration is required and there are a limited number of spaces available. Adults can register online at the library or online.
The next crafting opportunity for teens in grades 7-12 will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 10. They will make “Galaxy Rings” in the Teen Spot.
Writing Club for teens is at 2 p.m. every Wednesday in June, and at 2 p.m. on Thursdays a series of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities is sponsored by the Girl Scouts. The June 12 STEM event is “Imagine Yourself in a Lab.” Teens will extract DNA from a banana and participate in a food science challenge to make their own vinaigrette. This event is sponsored by the Girl Scouts but is open to boys and girls.
The Teen Spot will have a Board Game Day at 1:12 p.m. on Friday, June 13.
