‘Teen Crafternoon’: Bookmarks for summer reading

Black-and-white composition books with wrap-around ribbon bookmarks. Each bookmark features an elastic hair-tie secured by a casing sewn in the lower portion of ribbon that is visible. The hair-ties are stretched up to loop over buttons sewn to the other end of ribbon.

Our next “Teen Crafternoon” supplies what every reader needs, bookmarks, 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday in the Ashland Branch Library’s teen department.

Teen librarian Esther Mortensen will have supplies to make the ribbon-and-hairtie bookmarks shown above, as well as “art sticks” and paint sample cards that can be decorated and made into bookmarks.

This is our final “Teen Crafternoon” for the 2013-2014 school year. But craft programs will be scheduled during the library’s summer reading program.

I greatly enjoyed my time volunteering for “Teen Crafternoon” each month, and look forward to summer craft involvement as other commitments allow. I found my niche for volunteering at Ashland library through attending summer craft events.

Ashland Branch Library is located at 410 Siskiyou Blvd. For more information about Teen Crafternoon, contact the teen department at 541-774-6985.
