eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.

Befriend Your Sewing Machine with Cal Patch : Full but wait list started

Befriend Your Sewing Machine 
with Cal Patch
Author of Designing it Yourself, Patternmaking Simplified

(Potter Craft, 2009)

 

MONDAY MARCH 31st, 5-8 PM
Limited space available, so please call to register. We might have a few loaner machines, please call Tracy at the library if you are interested.

Do you have a sewing machine in your closet, but have never used it? Or every time you try to sew, a tangle of threads and frustration gets in the way? Maybe you want to sew, but the last time you stitched anything up was in Home Ec class in 8th grade? If you are looking for a low-commitment class to get acquainted with your machine (or reacquainted with the art of sewing), this is the one for you! In this 3-hour session, you will learn how to thread your machine and wind a bobbin, sew a simple seam, and hem edges. You will make either a pillowcase, tote bag, or drawstring pouch. From this start you’ll have a foundation for moving on to all kinds of sewing projects, and your machine may just become your very BEST friend!
