Craft & DIY Online

As the library has been closed the staff have been busy making videos on various subjects, such as Story Time Online, A Taste of the Classics and many more.

However, other videos that seem to generate a lot of interest are the ones focused on crafting projects. Therefore, we decided to dedicate a page to crafts and other DIY videos.

Keep watching this page, as we will be regularly updating with more interesting projects.
