On April 12th at our Makerspace Monday event, we touched and explored each strand of yarn softness, as we weaved and tied our Feathery Fun Macramé! Did you know a “chicken” has the longest feather and a “BEE Hummingbird” has the smallest feather? In fact, this little bird’s nest is the size of a quarter, kid you not! We also learned how to create hanging wall feather macramé art. Not only do we make incredibly “cool” stuff at the MakerSpace events but we also learn about science too.
Next, on April 17th for our STEM and Stories Saturday we met up with Cat, no, not a cat that goes meow, but our friend Cat Turner McAculiffe, TheraPets Coordinator from the Animal Rescue League of Iowa. Cat shared with us all of the MANY wonderful animal programs that ARL does each and every day around the entire state of Iowa. Cat even introduced us to her parrot that talks! Thank you so much for joining our library for a visit Cat, we are fortunate to have you in our community doing all the good that you do for our furry little friends.
Coming up next month on May 10th for Makerspace Monday Event, we will be using clothespins, twine, and sparkles as we make a Springtime Clothespin Planter, just in time for Mother’s Day! Seeds will be sprouting on May 15th with guest Roger Erpelding, Master Gardner as he shares with us his love for gardening. Who knows, you may want to become a Master Gardner too.
