STUFF! An Arts and Craft Program for Children @ King Library

Book Cover: Card Making by Sally HenryAre you always looking for cards for those special occasions but never have one on hand? Then join us for our next STUFF! program at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library on Saturday, May 14 at 3:00 PM. This time Chris and Mickey, our artistic volunteers, will show us how to make greeting cards for all occasions using collage. We will furnish all the supplies, you just bring your imagination and creativity! Remember that parking is FREE until 6:00 PM at the 4th Street Garage located above the Flames restaurant. Also, the library does have a collection of children's card making books that you can borrow.


The company synonymous with greeting cards is of course Hallmark. The company was founded by the 18 year old Joyce C. Hall in 1910; if you're curious and you'd like to find out more about the history of Hallmark then visit Mr. Hall also wrote a book called When You Care Enough. Unfortunately the book is not available at San Jose Public Library but you can request it through our Link+ service.
