School’s Out: Holiday Miniatures @ Ladd Library
Nov 21 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Get ready for the holidays!
Elementary school children are invited to the Ladd Library Community Room to create an original miniature holiday scene. Our team has scrounged up tiny corked bottles and teeny tiny festive decorations. Bottles can be used for table display or sealed and worn as a pendant. Either way, they are sure to have a place of honor during your winter holidays.

We always recommend confirming details before attending. We hope to see you there!
