There's nothing better than a personalized, home-made gift! Get creative and make something special this year with the Cricut Explore Air 2. Now bookable for one-hour time slots, you can pick up your materials and come in to the Library to get crafting. 

For those not familiar with Cricut, it's a cutting machine that allows you to create amazing DIY projects. From cards to custom T-shirts to home decor, Cricut makes it easy to realize your creative vision. 

Book a Cricut

Book a Cricut machine for a one-hour time slot at both locations during all open Library hours. Bring in your Cricut paper, vinyl, or cardstock and get crafting! Cricut supplies can be purchased at Michaels and Wal-Mart. 

You're welcome to design your project in advance or do it all in-Library on our iPad. The Library has a Cricut Access membership which provides stock photos and projects on our iPad that normally have a fee. See availability and book your Cricut.
