Children will make an attractive sun catcher to welcome spring and create interest in this year’s One Book, One Community choice: “Clara and Mr. Tiffany.” Beginning March 20, the first day of spring, children attending preschool story time will make a paper version of a stained glass sun catcher.
School-age children will be able to “make ’n take” the project outside school hours via a craft table that will be set up in the Children’s Section of the library March 20-27.
For older children and teens, the library will offer a pentominoes puzzle. A set of pentominoes is a mathematical tool consisting of 12 pieces. Each piece is made up of five squares that share at least one side. Youth can challenge themselves by creating a pentominoes puzzle.
The pentominoes puzzle is inspired by the book “Chasing Vermeer” by Blue Balliett, the children’s book selection for One Book, One Community. The book’s storyline features the pentominoes puzzle as well as a code hidden in the illustrations throughout the book.
