Dunkirk Public Library creates free craft kits for kids to make at home

Children are pictured with crafts they made with kits provided by the Dunkirk Public Library.

In this age of COVID-19 when craft classes at the library are not possible this summer, the Dunkirk Public Library is creating free craft kits for kids to take home to make.

“A new craft kit will be made available every Thursday until the end of August, and possibly into September,” said Pamela Czarniak, Dunkirk Public Library children’s coordinator. “We started this in June with July 4th necklace kits, and have had kits every week. We’ve given out kits for unicorn crowns, pirate masks, fairy tale sticker scenes, and crowns to decorate. We also added a treat with each kit, like candy, or Pirate’s Booty popcorn with the pirate themed kit. Future kits will include a Knight Shield to decorate, Mosaic Turtle, Sea Creature key chains, dragon, animal crafts, and more.”

Crafts are available for pick-up in the Children’s Room. The Dunkirk Public Library is open for its regular hours from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
