Looking for something interesting to do?

Look no further!

Introducing MAKERSPACE.

A makerspace is just what it says – a space for making things.

Here at the Catasauqua Public Library, we have done just that!

If you like making things, then stop by any time we’re open and have a go at the craft we have set out. Right now, we are painting Diyas. These are small terracotta oil lamps that are used in Diwali celebrations. Diwali is a festival of light in the Hindu religion.

As we move towards December and celebrate the Christmas star and Christian festival of lights, and in January Hannukah and the Jewish festival of lights, we will have other crafts for you to make.

All these are free to all, come on your own or with a friend or group and enjoy!
