Teen Advisory Board & Ornament Decorating

Want to give that special someone a completely unique, handmade holiday gift? Then join us for this month's TAB meeting!

In this special TAB session on Thursday, December 19 at 4 p.m. in the Teen Den, we'll be making some INDIGO MARBLED ORNAMENTS while doing some planning for the Teen Den.

These ornaments are made by dripping nail polish into a bowl of water, swirling the polish with a toothpick and then dipping and rolling the ornament to create beautiful marbled designs.

Snacks will be provided. See you there!

TAB meets the 3rd Thursday of each month, from 4 - 5 p.m. in the Teen Den. Free and open to all who want a say in the Library's teen collection and programs!
