Once you pick up your kit, watch a pre-recorded instructional video to learn how to make your pizza pillow.

Yarn Birds Project Kits still available!

Winter is over. Flowers are blooming, trees are budding and birds have returned after their winter hiatus in the south.  In the spirit of the season, we have created a fun take-home craft kit for teens ages 10 and up to make in conjunction with our CreativeBug database.

Simply sign up for a kit and we will send you an email when it is ready to be picked up through our Takeout service. After you pick up your kit, log in to CreativeBug or use your library card to create an account. You must have a Chatham library card to sign up. Reserve your kit

PLEASE NOTE: This take-home craft was designed and advertised for children ages 13 and older due to 2 small, sharp pins included in the kit. If your child is younger than 13 years old, please make sure that a parent or guardian supervises the child while they are making the craft.
