Getting Crafty at the Library! Every third Tuesday of the month, the Gothenburg Public Library hosts an adult crafting class. This class is designed to help adults connect with their inner creativity. January’s class consisted of making Valentine’s Day treat boxes. Pictured here is class leader Stephanie Johnson laughing as she shows Connie Ostergard and Deb Weidman how to fold their Valentine’s Day boxes. Most months the class meets in the upper room of the library. This week, however, they met in the primary room, surrounded by shelves of books. (Photo by, Ashley Mohler)
