The items to take apart, as well as tools and safety equipment, will be provided, but attendees are more than welcome to bring an item from home. We are also accepting donations of broken or unwanted materials to the program (for safety reasons we cannot accept anything with glass, liquids, or that has been used to prepare foods).

Craft Supply Swap!

Are you a crafter? Do you love to make things or repurpose things in your spare time? The Sharon Public Library will be hosting a Craft Swap, where interested parties can drop off materials on during the week (Monday through Wednesday), and on Thursday, people can browse for new supplies, all free!

If you drop off crafting materials during the week, you will be given a ticket for early access browsing on Thursday. All others interested in picking up free crafting materials will be welcome after the initial early-access period is over.

Early Access Browsing will take place from 11:00 am through 11:30 am. At 11:30 am, the room will open to the general public, and browsing will continue through 7:30 pm. As this is a community swap event, all items are on a first-come, first-serve basis. We ask that you be respectful of your neighbors, and allow everyone opportunities to swap supplies. 

Thinking about dropping off craft supplies during the week? All crafting supplies must be in good condition (paper orgranized, markers in containers, yarn balled neatly, etc.)  We are limiting donations to two boxes each. Any other donations must be discussed with library staff prior to donation.

Happy Belated Birthday, Jane Austen!
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Author Jane's birthday was back in December, but that was a busy month for the library, so we decided to pause on a birthday celebration for her until now. It was the 200th year anniversary of her death in 2017, and it's simply awe-inspiring that her words have stayed with us this long. And so, we want to celebrate her life! 

It's an afternoon of Jane Austen trivia, games, and of course, a tea party. Register at the link below to get a chance to participate in all the festivities!
