Creativebug

Creativebug puts creativity at your fingertips. This easy-to-use, instructional video platform is updated daily and has a library of well over 1,000 projects. Once you’ve found the video project you want to dive into, you can also view the transcript of the video, grab any templates, patterns or recipes needed, and go from there.


What’s inside: Art, craft and baking video tutorials by recognized experts in the field. With a wide range of video projects – anything from quilting to painting, papercrafts to knitting, even baking! – there seems to be something for all ages and abilities here.

Where to findCreativebug website – Library Website

Getting started: Help Guide | Video Tutorial

Devices: Can use via Web browser or in a mobile app for Android or Apple iOS.


One of the best features is being able to filter and sort your results with Creativebug. Once you’ve searched for a topic, you can filter the results to class type (beginner, instructional, etc.), category (e.g., holiday, children’s), or instructor. For example, with a search for “knitting” you can find some very basic projects to complete.

If you only have time for a quick creative hit, try out a Daily Practice session. These are 5-10 minute creative exercises or projects to keep your skills sharp and your artistic ideas flowing. If you have no time to make, but time to browse, check out Creativebug’s Inspiration Feed to see what other members are making and posting.

Creativebug is ad-free as well, no annoying popups or distractions once you have logged in. High quality, on-trend and engaging. What more could you ask for?

Please note: If you create an account through the mobile app first, you must go to the Creativebug website to add your library card number.
