The Hood River Library is hosting a craft drive for the public and inviting Hood River businesses to participate as well. The library requests any arts and crafts supplies folks are willing to part with. Donations will provide creative learning activities for kids throughout Hood River County this season. (Please no glass, sharp or heavy objects.)

“The library hopes to receive a mix of odds and ends — the kind of stuff that kids love,” said Sarah Ryan, Children’s Services assistant, in a press release. “The library will accept any materials a kid could create something out of. It seems they especially enjoy miniature things.”

Donors are welcome to drop off materials in the black bin in the library lobby anytime during Curbside Service hours. There is no due date for donations; the time frame is open-ended.
