Virtual Grief Support Activities for Youth and Their Families

The world is changing, and everyone is adjusting to a new normal, which can be challenging. Miss Stephanie will lead a four-part, grief-education series for those in kindergarten through 12th grade and their families.

Each month, she will offer strategies to cope with grief and provide memory-making activities that will allow youth and families to grieve together.

After participants register their families for each month's program, they will receive a Google Hangout link. In addition, registrants will be asked to indicate which library they would like to pick up art supplies and resources for the program from.

Mondays, 6:30 p.m.,

Vinyl Pumpkin Decoration
This class will be vinyl application 101. Use a precut adhesive vinyl design to decorate your pumpkin at home. Either a real or a faux pumpkin works. It will last more than one season if you spend a little extra money for a faux one. Participants need to supply their own pumpkin. We’ll go through commonly asked questions about vinyl and give tips on how to apply vinyl to an uneven surface.

  • Tuesday, Oct. 13: Craft bags available at both libraries,
