Ugly Holiday Sweater Craft November 2019 Gallery

We put out the tinsel and bells, in hopes people would bring an old sweater that repels. It’s the season. Friends ages 10 and older joined us to decorate one of their sweaters for the upcoming holidays.   For more details, dates and times for upcoming programs, please check the Huntley Area Public Library’s official website, the print or online copy of the library’s newsletter The Whole Story.

Bullet Journals (November 2019) Gallery

Amanda Palczynski, graphic designer and art journalist, shared tips and ideas (plus lots of fun art supplies and stickers) to inspire participants in the creation of their own bullet journals. Popular spreads included monthly calendars, mood trackers, and chores/to-do lists. Everyone went home with a journal and – hopefully – a desire to continue journaling.
