At the Putnam County Library February 22-25

Making and Baking with Bridgette is Back!

Putnam County Public Library is happy to welcome DePauw student Bridgette Lang back for another season of Making and Baking with Bridgette. For the spring season, the 5-part series will include making bath bombs, dream catchers, French crepes, and homemade bird feeders. Bridgette Lang is a third-year student at De- Pauw and has been a volunteer at the library since 2015. Bridgette has been crafting and baking with her grandmother for as long as she can remember, and she hopes to share her love for creativity with the patrons of the library! Her goal for this series is to show the Putnam County community how a few easy steps can turn into beautiful (and delicious) creations!

The schedule of events for the spring season of Making and Baking with Bridgette will be as follows:

March 1st, 4-5:30 – Marbled Mugs

March 22nd, 4-5:30 – Bath bombs

April 5th, 4-5:30 – Dream Catchers

April 19th, 4-5:30 – Birdfeeder Wreaths

May 3rd, 4-5:30 – Crepes

All events will be free of charge, but pre-registration is highly encouraged. Patrons can sign up at the circulation desk of the library or over the phone by calling 765-653-2755.

At the end, we’ll vote for the best book of the year! Battle of the Books will run for five Thursdays, from March 2nd through March 30th. All children in grades K-6 are welcome!

Irish First Friday!

Celebrate Irish First Friday at the Putnam County Public Library! We will open our doors for an adults-only, after hours event on Friday, March 3rd. Doors will open at 6:15 pm for a viewing of photographs of Ireland by Melanie Finney. There will also be a cash bar (beer and wine) and hors d’oeuvres, courtesy of the Greencastle Arts Council.

The Festivities will continue with Irish music performed by a group of Greencastle’s own talented musicians from 6:30 - 7:30. Dancers from Richens Timm Academy of Irish Dance will take the stage from 7:30 -8:00 pm, followed by more music and an Irish Open Mic from 8:00 to 9:00 pm!
