To thoughtfully recognize the upcoming holiday season, the focus of November's after-school workshops is giving to others. This second workshop supports the City of Fayetteville's efforts to supply senior citizens with items addressing needs and wants during the holidays. The library will provide gift bags and items to pack in them, but workshop participants are welcome to bring additional items to include. If your child would like to bring their own contributions, the city's list of suggested items includes robes, nightgowns, house slippers, socks, blankets/throws, crossword/jigsaw puzzles, ergonomic pens, emergency radios, batteries, night lights, first aid kits, coloring books, crayons, and gift cards. ALL DONATED ITEMS MUST BE NEW, ABSOLUTELY UNUSED, AND STILL IN THEIR PACKAGING. Again, it is completely optional to bring items as we will provide plenty for each child to pack in a gift bag. Participants will also decorate the bags as well as cards to go inside them. Students in grades 2nd-4th are eligible to participate. Registration is required and opens October 24.
