* FREE FALL CRAFT KITS FOR YOU!
Our Canyon Country Public Library has given us 20 free craft kits for our students to enjoy.  They are canvas tote bags that you can decorate with fall images.  Your SV Library has them available for pick up during our Curbside Library Book Pickup/Dropoff days on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1-3:00 p.m.  If you'd like one of these free kits, complete the  BOOK REQUEST FORM and type the word "craft" for one of the book titles.  We will reply with an email to confirm whether or not the kits are still available.  Here's a step-by-step video for how to make the craft:  https://youtu.be/KYiBDdTVv78
