Crafting materials available for checkout from Avondale Regional Library  
 
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-If you like doing crafts at home but don’t have the materials you need, the Avondale Regional Branch Library has the resources to help you available for checkout –just like books.
 
Thanks to the library’s new Avondale Crafting Collection, patrons can check out the paper bead winders, knitting looms, and jewelry-making tools used in its popular adult craft programs. All items must be picked up and returned at the Avondale Library Circulation Desk. Call 205-226-4000 or drop by the circulation desk for more information.
 
The Crafting Collection is intended to support and extend Avondale Library’s weekly adult craft programs, which include Books & Beads, a monthly jewelry-making workshops evert third Wednesday, and Fiber Arts on Fifth Avenue, held on the fourth Wednesday of the month, said Ellen Griffin Shade, circulation manager at Avondale Regional Library.
 
“Our crafting tools circulate for three weeks and can be renewed, just like books,” Shade said. “The knitting looms and bead winders come with instructions, but patrons will need to provide their own raw materials (paper strips, glue, and sealant (if desired) for the paper beads, and yarn for the knitting looms).”
 
Meanwhile, Avondale Regional Library will host a Club Create Craft Sale on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017, from 2-5 p.m.. Call 205-226-4000 for details.
