Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

If you like to knit, scrapbook, sew, or pursue some other craft, you probably have plenty of "leftovers." Why not trade those things you no longer use for "new to you" materials?

To celebrate Money Smart Week, crafters are invited to bring craft supplies in good condition to the Main Library Lobby on Saturday mornings, April 11 and 18, between 10 a.m. and noon. Donors will receive a coupon good to redeem for "new to you" materials at the Craft Supply Swap on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to noon.
