For the month of March, we invite you to show your crafty projects at the library on our special Pinterest Craft Display! Pinterest is a treasure trove of DIY projects, but it's so easy to get stuck in a cycle of only pinning and not creating. Be sure to absorb as much inspiration as pos- sible and channel those ideas into something that you create yourself. Mary Kay Johnson, adult program co- ordinator, will pin your unique handmade projects to her Library Craft Night Pinterest board and watch the creativity spread. We will be providing weekly Pinning Prompts via Facebook to guide you through a "March" of crafting. We hope that by providing our readers with a place where they can share their handmade artwork, they will be able to connect with others who share similar craft- ing interests and be exposed to new ones as well! If you are interested in an evening of making DIY projects, register for the Craft Night Pinterest Party, which will be Tuesday, March 24, at 6:30 p:m. A $2 res- ervation fee is required, but it rdfunded when you attend the event.
