Program Description

Event Description

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - When plastic shopping bags inevitably accumulate, it's in Earth's best interest that we recycle them and what better way than to upcycle! Plastic bags can be made into sleeping mats for people experiencing homelessness.

Each month, an instructional class will be held to teach newly interested community members how to use our loom and then they can visit the library any time after to help reach our community goal. We've partnered with a local organization to distribute these mats to those in need this Spring. 

If you're unable to attend Saturday afternoons please contact Almonte for an accommodation.
