West Fargo Public Library celebrating National Craft Month with craft supply recycling event - CLOSED April 1, 2017

During March, crafters around the country celebrate National Craft Month with events and new projects. This year, the West Fargo Public Library and the library’s Twisted Stitchers knitting group are celebrating by hosting a craft supply recycling event.

During the month of March, the community can visit the West Fargo Public Library meeting room 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays to donate unused craft supplies. Supplies that are eligible for donation include scrapbook paper, buttons, beads, glue, scissors, glitter, ribbon and paints. For a complete list of acceptable materials, please call the service desk at (701) 433-5460. All of the donated supplies will be given to local activity and day care centers in April.

Crafting is celebrated each March and has been demonstrated to reduce stress, build self-esteem, increase physical dexterity, improve concentration and enhance health and mental wellness. The West Fargo Public Library offers a number of craft projects each month for the community. In March, these events cover gardening, woodworking, knitting and story time with crafts for children.
