Library Holiday Craft Activity

** DECEMBER CLASS IS FULL **

Make It @ Your Library Series

For over 10 years, the Paso Robles City Library has been offering a holiday craft event for adults. This year, kick off your Christmas season by making a beautiful handcrafted tabletop Christmas tree to enhance your holiday décor. All materials and instruction needed for this project will be provided.

Family groups are welcome, however due to the nature of the tools and materials used, children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

The December holiday craft activity is full! Please check back for 2017 dates!

Book Group Reading Kits

Attention All Book Group Members!

Reading Group Kits include ten copies of a proven title and laminated discussion questions - all in a handy book bag for easy transportation. These kits have been in such demand that this year the Library has more than doubled its collection size! Designed to aid local book groups, Reading Group Kits ensure that each member has a copy of the title to read and that the discussion is thought provoking. Kits check out for six weeks to give groups plenty of time to read and discuss the title before they must be returned.

If you are a member of a book group, visit the Paso Robles City Library soon to choose your groupís next title! For more information about Reading Group Kits, contact Karen Christiansen, Adult Services Librarian, at 237-3870.
