Tween Crafternoon: Hanging Jellyfish

Wednesday, June 21
03:30 pm to 04:30 pm

Have you ever sat back and admired one of the chillest fish in the ocean? While it's technically not really a fish (since it doesn't have a back bone), they're pretty cool! Start your summer off at the library and drop-in to the auditorium to create your own hanging jellyfish buddy for this free tween program!

 

Warning: we do not recommend pulling a Dory and trying jellyfish bouncing in real life.
