Help with Chicago Public Library Programs

Posted by Ron Wolford -

The Chicago Public Library has asked Extension to teach a fun and crafty class Design Your Favorite Book Character in 6 different library locations. The 6th-8th grade groups will decorate a planter with paints and crafts modeled after their favorite literary character, and then plant grass or lettuce seed to grow the hair. We would love to have 1-2 MG's at each event if possible. Please look at the following schedule, and contact Kate Weinans if you would be available to help. Thank you for your continued dedication and volunteerism.
