Craft Supply Swap

After a three-year hiatus, the Craft Supply Swap returns to the Grundy Library! Just in time to celebrate art and an individual creativity, we’re collecting craft supplies from those projects that you attempted but decided not to pursue. Conversely, if you’ve always wanted to try a new craft without investing a lot of money, come by the Library on Saturday, March 2, 2024 to find the supplies and tools for your new creative outlet. Details of the swap can be found at
