April 22, 2015 is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. Traditionally most people plant trees on this day, but we thought we would make a fun project that anyone can do – even your children. Our inspiration came from “Kids Chia Pet” at beautifulhomeandgardendiy.com
We used a 2-liter bottle for the “adult” and a 16-oz. bottle for the “child”. We also used grass seed instead of chia seed to make it more affordable. If you come into the library during the week of April 20-25 and bring your own empty bottle, we will have the supplies for you to make your own Earth Day pet.

On Halloween, Friday, October 31, 2014, the Tamarack District Library will be closing at 4:00 PM to allow the ghouls (girls) at the library time to prepare for a Haunted Halloween. From 5:00 to 7:30 PM they will have special treats and tricks for the area children. Bats and rumors are flying around town, and there’s talk of spooky activities such as “The Donuts of Doom,” scary crafts and a mysterious maze for children to master. Everyone is guaranteed a frighteningly good time! Plan to include your local library in your Halloween itinerary.
In our continued effort to bring community members together to learn, share and grow TDL is hosting a DIY Day at the library each month. These programs will be the perfect place for a day out with friends or family. If you need to spend some time with your teenager bring them along and share the experience of creating your own unique creation.
Our first DIY Day is Saturday, September 21st, starting at 10:30 AM. TDL Staff will show you how to make a Book Page Dahlia and then you can create one of your own. These Dahlia Wall Hangers create interest and conversation when displayed. Once you know how to make one you can make them in different sizes and with different types of paper to create your own style.
Bring a friend and join us on September 21st at 10:30 AM.
