Take and Make Crafts

This month we’re starting to offer a new option for kids and families to get their creativity on! Each week we will open registration for different “Take and Make” craft kits for various different age groups. Kits will contain all the basic materials you need to make the project. Check out what kit you would like to get and then visit the link that week to sign up for your kit. You can choose from seven different pickup locations throughout the Pasadena Public Library system.

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, and STEAM/science programs. I also do 16 weeks of Infant/Toddler Storytimes each year. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
