New Jersey Makers Day
Upcycling: Create, Make, Take Home!
The Library is looking forward to hosting its first ever event as official NJ Makers Day event sponsor.
NJ Makers Day is designed to be a statewide event that celebrates, promotes, and in many cases may introduces maker culture, as well as the values associated with making, tinkering and STEM-based learning. In 2016, NJ Makers Day drew over 40,000 individual attendees to more than 230 participating sites across all 21 counties in the state.
At Kemmerer Library we will be upcycling old books to give them a second life as fun, useful objects: bowls, post-cards, folded book projects, and much more. Join us for some creative tinkering in the downstairs multi-use room. All ages are invited to attend and make!
Altered book projects for kids: Pop-Up Postcards, secret keepsake box, fun buttons
Altered book projects for adults: Paper bowl (2-day project), folded book
The newest club in town for kids in Gr.3-5!
This 4 week program is designed to encourage growing tweens to ‘be their best’ through making healthy food choices, staying active, learning about body care, and considering the environment – all in the most fun way with lots of hands-on activities!
Session 3: #BeeHappy! In our very own mini ‘spa lab’ kids can explore making some body care products such as lip balm, using beeswax from the Kemmerer Library’s beehives.
Session4: #BCreative! In this crafting class, we will make an eco-friendly craft (to be determined)
