Are you looking for a new creative outlet? If so, Rawlins Municipal Library can help!
Beginning June 1, the library is offering its cardholders unlimited access to Creativebug. The web-based software provides step-by-step instructions to more than 1,000 cooking and crafting activities. Each instructional video is on demand and led by professional designers, artists, or dessert makers.
“I really like that each activity lays out the materials you’ll need, as well as the time commitment required before you even start the video,” said Abby Edwardson, Library Director. “You can also sort the activities by skill level and type. It really helps you know what you’re getting into before committing.”
To name a few, programs include everything from ceramics, to knitting, to drawing, to book making, to cake decorating. Additionally, there’s a daily practice section. It provides short exercises to help stretch creativity, find inspiration, and push through creative block.
Library cardholders can access the instructional videos from Rawlins Library or from a device at home.
“If people find a craft or hobby they really like, Rawlins is equipped to supplement the videos with books and other resources as well,” said Edwardson. “This is a great opportunity for people to keep their minds and their hands active while doing something that interests them.”
Those who live in Pierre and Fort Pierre receive complimentary library cards. Annual non-resident library cards are $35. Signing up for a card takes less than five minutes and provides cardholders with access to Creativebug, as well as approximately 159,000 books, ebooks, digital magazines and other materials for research and entertainment.
