July 2019 brought us a few events at the library.
July 3rd we all made “4th of July” crackers in honor of Independence day, since we were closed on July 4th. Kids had fun with this craft. toilet paper tubes with poppers in them wrapped in tissue paper.
Up next the adult painted gourds. Some were bird house some were not, but all painted up really nice.
The kids made DIY Glitter jars on July 10th, they really liked these. Jars with space themed items in them filled with water and glitter, some times lots, and lots of glitter!, but oh well they had fun!
We closed July 11th, 12th and 13th for the Richmond Fair.
