Nappanee Public Library Events This Week
Looking for some ideas for hand-made last-minute Christmas gifts and supplies? The Nappanee Public Library will host its monthly Pinterest Night in the Cube, the Library’s new Makerspace, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 10.
All materials will be provided to make a jar of sugar scrub and a set of paper gift tags using Cube equipment! Cost is $5 for one jar of scrub and all-you-can-make die cut gift tags. Feel free to bring your own embellishments, craft supplies and essential oils to put a personal touch on your projects.
All ages are welcome, but children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Pinterest Night is designed as a collaborative, learn-as-you-make program where participants share ideas and tips to complete popular projects found on Pinterest, the virtual bulletin board and Internet hub for bookmarking lifestyle links and images.
Registration is requested, but not required.
3D Printer Training
Cardholders with an interest in the maker movement, engineering, drafting, crafting, and other techno-creative endeavors are invited to become certified on the Library’s new Makerbot 3D printer.
The next training session takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 18.
Learn how to program, run and troubleshoot projects on the machine and become certified to use it independently. Register by Monday, Dec. 15.
Did you know you could check out a portable opaque projector or die cut machine at the Nappanee Public Library? How about craft patterns or jigsaw puzzles? There are more than books at the Library! New cardholders and those interested in learning more about the Library are invited to a guided tour of the Nappanee Public Library at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 15.
In addition to discovering where to find current bestsellers, a favorite cookbook, or the daily news, participants will be introduced to many special services. These include the Library’s online catalog, eMedia, computers and copiers for use in the library; framed original art, CD’s, DVD’s and many other materials for loan.
The library, located at 157 N. Main St., holds the tour the third Monday of every month and by appointment.
