Kids make leaf wreaths at Parkland library
During the early evening of Oct. 7, a group of kids gathered leaves from outside Parkland Community Library, South Whitehall.
Although there was a light rain, they were going to make wreaths from the freshly gathered leaves.
Teen Services and Programming Librarian Amanda Evans provided the instructions to make leaf wreaths.
Each youngster tried to make the best and most unusual wreath, and parents were there to give assistance, if needed.
The creative juices flowed and the kids created a wonderful variety of wreaths before heading home.
