PELLA — The Pella Public Library has announced its summer program offerings for the month of July.

Rainbow stitch meditation kits

This summer, the Pella Public Library is offering color-themed Stitch Meditation Kits. In Celebration of the Summer Program theme, "Reading Colors Your World," we'll stitch our way through the colors of the rainbow in the coming weeks. Red, Orange and Yellow Kits are now available with Green, Blue and Violet to be introduced on a weekly basis in July.

Using stitching to meditate and relax has become widely popular among crafters. Stitch without a purpose to allow your mind to go where it will - there’s no right or wrong way to do it!

Each kit includes batting and fabric squares, fabric scraps, buttons, thread and directions. You will need to provide your own needle.

Please call the library at 641-628-4268 if you have questions about these opportunities.

Design a bookmark

Do you like to draw? Do you find yourself doodling while watching TV or talking to friends?

To help celebrate the 2021 summer program theme, Reading Colors Your World, the Pella Public Library is inviting you to create a design that can be reproduced as a bookmark. You’ll create a black line drawing —basically a small coloring page -that can be printed out for people to color, then use as a bookmark!

Entry forms can be picked up at the Pella Public Library during July. Entries returned by July 31 will be entered into a drawing to win Pella Bucks.

This program is free and open to all ages. Please contact the Pella Public Library at 641-628-4268 if you have any questions.
