Take Home Craft Kits

We have put together a variety of craft kits for people of all ages. These kits include (almost) all of the supplies you will need to complete a craft at home.* Please contact the library to request curbside pick up or home delivery of your kit: director@sunderlandpubliclibrary.org or 413-665-2642. A limited number of each kit is available.

*Some items, such as scissors and paint brushes, you may be required to provide for yourself. Please contact us if you have any questions about the contents of any of our craft kits, or if you need to borrow any supplies from us.

All kits and their contents are yours to keep, but we would love to see your completed project! Please feel free to snap a picture and send it to us.

Friday Grab-and-Go Craft Bags

Every Friday we will have a different craft available to take. These crafts are best for children ages 3 – 7. Bags may be picked up in the library’s backyard (or in the library’s back foyer in the event of rain) each Friday between 10:30 AM – 4:30 PM.

Stained Glass Mosaic Sun Catchers

These kits were generously provided by a grant from the Sunderland Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
