Imagine. Create. Explore.
What if the library was more than just a place for books, music and movies? What if the library was a place to learn survival skills, brew beer and fix your bike? Find new opportunities to make, create and explore.
Try your hand at print making, play to bring out your inner child and think more seriously about what skills make a maker. Cap it all off with Making Montana, a two-day event celebrating making and 21st century skills. It’s all about Making, with a capital M, this winter at ImagineIF Libraries.
Carve your own block, play with patterns, and make a simple design shine. Take home a graphic art print ready to frame or hang on the wall. While supplies last.
