Creativity is abundant at the library this summer. Adults can paint happy trees and clouds with Certified Ross Instructor George Lee. Tweens and teens can decorate cupcakes and a watermelon. Everyone is invited to create an Artful Garden with a flower pot they decorate themselves or to make a Jedi or Sith craft at Star Wars Bead Creations.
