The Roanoke County Library Headquarters allowed children of all ages to “Be Creative” last Wednesday with a wide range of arts and crafts. The room was packed as children freely roamed between six different craft tables, all with the theme of “Be Creative”. Youth librarian, Wendy Rancier, explained that the event was not only fun for the children, but also still very economical for the library. The library was able to conduct the event with a few left over materials from previous summer events. Scratched CDs, plastic eggs, cardboard, styrofoam, and beads were among the materials that truly aloud children to let their imaginations roam free.
The room was divided into six different arts and crafts sections including: sand art, bead necklaces, spin art painting, mask patterns, and two tables that allowed the children to use their imaginations with some CDs, cardboard, and several other random and fun materials. For two hours the library allowed the children to create and share their artwork with peers and let their imaginations go wild!
