A great way to celebrate Earth Day is recycling. Recycling is a way to take something that you would normally throw away and turn it into something new. That is what this kit is about. We have been creating a lot of craft kits here at the Main Library and have accrued quite a bit of random strips of paper. So instead of throwing out paper, we thought about how we can recycle them….and the answer is Reading! Reading is always more fun with a bookmark to save your place! Bookmarks are even better when you create them yourself. Help us do our part in protecting the earth by picking up one of our teen bookmark craft kits.

These craft kits will be available beginning April 19, while supplies last. Kits will be available for pickup between Monday-Thursday, from 9am-7pm and Friday-Saturday from 9am-5pm at the Main Library (via curbside or at the Youth Services desk).

If you are looking for other ways to help preserve our precious earth check out these books available on our site www.kckpl.org.
