Are you a crafter who is running out of reasons to craft? Do you make incredible knitted creations, but have nothing to do with them? Do you paint gorgeous works of art but have no space left on your walls? If so, we just might have the perfect solution for you… donate to NMPL's Santa's Workshop event!
Santa's Workshop takes place once a year in November, and allows kids from the community to "purchase" gifts from NMPL for their loved ones. This is an AMAZING program for multiple reasons, but the main one is that EVERY CHILD, no matter what financial insecurity they may be facing, is able to "buy" gifts for the people they love. This means so much to these kids. Without this workshop, some children would have no other way of buying gifts.
Typically, NMPL staff members work all year long to create crafts, toys, and ornaments for the event, but we want to open it up to our amazing community.
This is the perfect opportunity to craft your heart out AND have an outlet for all your creations. Donations should be clean, neat, and from a pet-free/smoke free environment in order to be allergy friendly. All donations can be brought to the front desk.
Thank you for making a difference!
The mission of the North Manchester Public Library is to provide materials, programs, and services necessary to meet the recreational and educational needs of the community in a comfortable and easily-accessible facility, which is a community center of activity and information.
