Continuing with a series begun earlier this month, officials at the Stanislaus County Riverbank Branch Library again were teaching youngsters to make craft ornaments for their Christmas trees.

A recent project was building a ‘Yarn Bird’ from loops of colored yarn cut strategically and tied together.

A number of youngsters and their parents were on hand for the Dec. 5 craft activity to learn about and then build the creatures, ultimately heading home with the finished work.

These hands-on projects are part of a series of after-school crafts activities the Florence Bessac Branch Library sponsors, usually on Tuesdays. They typically begin after school gets out for the day.

Riverbank’s library is at 3442 Santa Fe Street, across from Cardozo Middle School and can be reached at 209-869-7008.
