A former children’s librarian who can’t stop talking about libraries…that’s me! Welcome to the second week of a new feature called “Library Life”, bringing you the weekend’s library events happening around the area, from Louisville to Prospect to New Albany and places in between. Let’s get started with this weekend’s featured library happenings, brought to you by a Louisville Free Public Library insider. This weekend is a little less scheduled with it being the Independence Day holiday, and all area libraries are closed on Friday, July 4.
July is DIY Month at Louisville Free Public Library
Learn about some do-it-yourself opportunities all month long at the Louisville Free Public Library. From knitting, crochet, and stitching clubs to artsy/creative programs like DIY tie dye, upcycled picture frames, and making crafts with old books, there is a program for every taste. See the library’s DIY calendar of events here.
