Holiday Crafts Made at Eureka Hills Library
Kids can find more than books at the local library.
More than a dozen children gathered around tables at the Eureka Hills St. Louis County Library in the Hilltop Village Center Saturday morning to construct holiday crafts.
Sarah Steele, Eureka library assistant, led youngsters and their mothers and grandmothers through building snow globes from empty baby food jars and sleighs from pop sickle sticks. This event targeted children between the ages of 5 to 11 years.
All attendees were able to take home their crafts.
The next events scheduled for young readers at the Eureka Hills library are story times on Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Santa Claus will be the special guest that day, and guardians are encouraged to bring cameras to get photos with him.
A second story time day will be conducted Dec. 16 at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., with being able again to make a holiday craft after hearing special Christmas stories.
Library organizers indicated these last two story time events are geared for children 3 to 6 years old, but that all are welcome.
