At the first session, scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 16, participants will create collages from recycled magazines. Future session will explore making sculptures from books, beads from magazines and magnets from bottle caps. All supplies are provided.

The library also plans an origami workshop for students ages 11 and older at 3 p.m. on Friday, July 22. Instructor Bob Voelker will work from simple designs to more complex folds and modular constructions.
