Star Wars fans of all ages (kids, teens, and adults) are encouraged to stop by the Library to pick up a kit to create their own Star Wars Snowflakes. There are five snowflakes included in each kit: Baby Yoda, Porg, BB-8, Darth Vader, and R2-D2.

Kits will be available daily (Monday through Saturday), during no-contact pick up hours (typically 10 AM - 4 PM).

Participants of our Star Wars Winter Reading program can use the Star Wars Snowflake Kit to complete their Jedi Order badge. For more details, and to sign up for our Winter Reading Program visit graftonlibrary.org/wrp.

These snowflakes are from Anthony Herrera Designs. Check out the website for more characters and designs.

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Virtual Book Discussion: Inspirational Book Group

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of Outer Order, Inner Calm: Declutter & Organize to Make Room For More Happiness, by Gretchen Rubin, available in regular print, large print, and through OverDrive/Libby in eBook and eAudio formats.


Description: "Gretchen Rubin knows firsthand that creating order can make our lives happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative. But for most of us, a rigid, one-size-fits-all solution doesn't work. When we tailor our approach to suit our own particular challenges and habits, we can find inner calm. With a sense of fun, and a clear idea of what’s realistic for most people, Rubin suggests dozens of manageable tips and tricks for creating a more serene, orderly environment."
