SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Public Library’s children’s department offers weekly take-and-make crafts for children and will soon offer craft projects for tweens. These projects can be picked up at the downstairs circulation desk, or you can request one be placed in the library’s anytime pickup lockers.
While picking up craft packets and materials, check out the children’s department’s new bulletin board. It started as bare tree branches, but patrons have added leaves to it with their book recommendations. See what others are recommending and ask for a leaf to leave your own book suggestions.
Finally, story time and the homeschool program continue at 10:30 a.m. each Friday through Nov. 19.

The adult book club will meet twice this week to discuss “Outfoxed” by David Rosenfelt, a part of the popular Andy Carpenter series.
