Children and adults learned about the colors of different 2SLGBTQIA+ community flags at the central branch of the Saint John Free Public Library by crafting flags, buttons, and other designs.
This craft day was centered around The Big Book of Pride Flags. This children’s book contains easy-to-understand explanations of seventeen Pride flags, and was used for storytelling to match the crafts.
After story time, the library offered the audience sheets of paper printed with Pride flags silhouettes and different kinds of materials: pieces of colored paper, stickers, pompoms and materials like scissors, glue and a button machine.
With those materials, adults and kids were able to create their unique and colorful crafts. This was also the final day to submit completed Rainbow Book and Activity Bingo cards for the activity/contest the library launched in June. Completed bingo card submissions won a gift card to a local business or rainbow fanny pack speaker.
Chroma sends a big thank you for the collaboration and organization by Aaron Horton, Library Assistant in the Children’s Department of the central branch of the Saint John Free Public Library who made this event possible, and to our stellar crafty volunteer, Kenny.
