Join Linda Shea on Saturday, April 6th as she helps you to create 5 different greeting cards. Linda will have the all of the supplies that you will need so all you have to do is put the cards together to your liking. There are 5 different cards- 2 birthday, 2 everyday (you can make a thank you, thinking of you, birthday... it’s what stamp you wish to use), and a cute Easter card. There will be sparkle glue, flowers, mini jewels and punches for you to personalize your cards.

The cost of this workshop is $5.00 for 5 cards- much cheaper than if you bought them in the store and you’ll be able to say “I made it myself!”.

To guarantee your spot, sign up and pre-pay the $5.00 fee at the library.

There will be extra card supplies available if you wish to make more.

"A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it's not too late to start over . . .

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a ...
