Orange City Public Library hosts Crafting Night on Thursday, Feb. 7 

The winter doldrums might just be making their way around town.

But the Orange City Public Library has a plan to help you combat this common winter malady. They are inviting you to get crafting.

They will be hosting a Crafting Night for adults and college students at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7. There are spots for 20 people and you can register by simply calling the library by Monday, Feb. 4.

The event is free and there are three different craft projects to try.

“For the Crafting Night, we will have three crafts available for attendees to make: a yarn-wrapped glass bottle vase; a decorated coaster; and a painted rock,” said Parveen Karim, the assistant director for the Orange City Public Library.

This isn’t the first time that the library has hosted crafting nights.

“There have been other craft nights; usually they are dedicated to specific things, like the Wreath Making Class we had in December. This is my first time running a series of crafts as a program for adults,” Karim said. “I just want people to have fun and enjoy coming to the library.”

This crafting night is a part of the library’s reading program for the winter season.

“The College Student/Adult Crafting Night is an event during our expanded Winter Reading Program 2019. Patrons can stop by the library and pick up a reading log. From Feb. 1 through March 2, 15 minutes a day for 10 days equals 1 drawing slip,” Karim said. “If patrons attend events, like the Crafting Night, during the Winter Reading Program, they earn additional slips for the drawing.”

This event will give people a chance to think outside the box and enjoy some time doing something indoors during the winter weather.

“I like seeing the creativity people have. It’s inspiring,” Karim said.
