Curbside Craft Club: Grab 'n' Go Kits (Ages 9-13) - For the Week of February 1st Pick-up

Featured Craft: Chinese/Lunar New Year's mini crafts

For the months of January-March, Miss Allison will offer a limited number of grab 'n' go craft kits for kids ages 9-13 to take home.

Due to the overwhelming positive response from families asking for kits these last few months, the week-by-week email registration process will remain in place to allow all families a chance to participate.    

1. Kits are available through email registration only. To register, email Miss Allison at ariendeau@ocln.org with the number of kits you are requesting and the child/children’s name(s).   ​​

2. Registration for the next week's craft will open every Monday. For example, you would email Miss Allison starting Monday, January 4th, to pick up a kit for week of January 11-16th.​

3. You will receive an email response confirming your registration.

4.  Due to recent upticks in COVID cases, we recommend considering curbside pick-up service. You can sign up for a curbside time slot any time during the designated week and write "KIDCRAFT" in after your last name in the last name field of the curbside sign-up form. (If choosing to enter the library building for pick-up, please check our homepage to be mindful of browsing restrictions.) 

The grab 'n' go kits include most of the supplies needed to complete the projects and instructions (sometimes including links to online and/or video instructions).

Participants are encouraged to share their finished crafts by sending photos to ariendeau@ocln.org or sharing on social media and tagging Sharon Public Library.  

Grab n go kits are popular! If you email Miss Allison and there are no more kits available that week she will put you first on the list for the next week's craft. You be notified by email if this happens.  

*Please note that Miss Allison makes every effort to provide awesome kits to as many kids/families as possible. Supplies are limited, so we ask that you limit your request to 1 kit per child.

Hygge House Decorating Contest

Hygge is a Scandinavian concept, a feeling of coziness and comfort in the present moment, and is often used to cope with the boredom, bad weather, and early evenings associated with wintertime.

Given that winter is well underway in New Enland, we thought it might be fun for people to create their own Hygge spaces this winter, using supplies provided by the library. Once the hygge space is created, submit a picture to Assistant Director Miki Wolfe* to be entered in the Hygge House contest.

The rules are simple:

  • The Sharon Public Library will provide you with basic supplies to build a Hygge room.
  • You *must* use the randomly assigned pieces of furniture in your Hygge room. You can feel free to supplement with any additional materials to help you achieve hygge (you aren't required to use the associated scraps and papers we provide with the kits. Those are just for fun. You can use the box provided for your room, or use another box if you prefer.)
  • Register online to reserve a house kit, available for pickup on 1/25/21. *Supplies are limited. One kit per household, please*
  • Decorate your hygge room at home. Once it's complete, take a photo and email it to mwolfe@ocln.org by 2/20/21. Photos will be posted on our Facebook page & voting will occur between 2/22/21 & 2/27/21.
  • We respectfully ask that all voting be limited to Sharon residents, and immediate friends and family. Unusual voting patterns will be subject to review by Sharon Public Library staff.
  • Our winners will be announced on March 1, 2021.
  • Space & supplies are limited. One entry per household, please. This contest is appropriate for ages 8+.

​*of course, if competition violates your sense of hygge, then feel free to just assemble the room, and take pride in your accomplishment instead :)

 

Questions? Call 781-784-1578 x1422 or email mwolfe@ocln.org.

(Virtual) The New Normal New England Road Trip
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The New Normal New England Roap Trip: No Masks or Gas Required

During a challenging time when most people are limiting their travel, this talk takes folks along on a rollicking ride around New England—all in just one hour, and all from the comfort of their own home.

 

Author of three books about New England and longtime “Chronicle” reporter Ted Reinstein is your tour guide as you go from Maine to Rhode
Island, Mt. Washington to Mt. Mansfield, and Berkshire foliage to Fenway Park.

But Ted’s 20-plus years of reporting and telling stories from all over New England means this is not your average bus tour. Prepare to meet colorful characters who’ve done the darndest things, learn odd facts about familiar
places, and of course—this being a Ted talk—expect to visit at least a few fabulous classic diners. (Spoiler alert: Ted reveals where to find THE best clam chowdah in America—and it’s right here in New England!)


Ted will take Questions following the talk.
