Spread some Easter cheer through card-making

Because it proves that you don't need much to change the entire world for the better. You can start with the most ordinary ingredients. You can start with the world you've got. ~ Catherine Hyde

Rabbit sniffing flowers

With a just cardboard, string and perhaps a glue stick or two - Teens in Tecumseh are invited to pay it forward with the Tecumseh Public Library’s Give Back" Easter Cards program, at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 4.

Participants will create a set of six Easter cards. These cards will then be delivered to local nursing homes so residents, who cannot get out and shop for cards for the Easter Holiday, can select from them to give to friends and family. It's a great way for Teens to show their creativity and to enable our elders to share in the joy of the season.

This is one of the library’s continuing series of teen afterschool programs scheduled on Wednesdays. Registration is not required in advance to participate.
