Program Description

Event Details

Let's celebrate summertime with rainbow windsocks! A windsock is made up of different materials tied onto a hoop that dances in the wind. We will provide the hoop, colorful materials to tie to the hoop, bells and twine to hang it up with for FREE with registration. This is similar to a wind chime but made up of cloth and ribbons. DMPL librarian, Haley, will assist participants with learning how to create their own rainbow windsocks!
