Peggy Howe (4)Why did SCFOL sponsor a craft fair?  Our libraries support a variety of community interests and the San Carlos Branch Library has a very active Crafters’ Circle that meets on Mondays from 1:00-5:00 pm. It’s free, and you are welcome to join them at anytime–click on Crafters Circle.   The Fair gave our community’s crafters a venue where they could sell their handmade items while supporting the library with their donations; and you, the buyer supported our crafters and branch library by purchasing one-of-a-kind items for yourself or Holiday gift giving. A real “hat trick.” We thank all who came on October 11, arms loaded with purchases. [easingsliderpro id=”42″]
