Last Wednesday, patrons of the Burbank Public Library enjoyed a free, fun-filled program at the Buena Vista Branch entitled "DIY Beading Bonanza." Those who attended got the opportunity to create bracelets using a variety of beautiful beads and charms in multiple styles and colors.
They enjoyed choosing their own beads, and then learning how to string them to create bracelets using simple materials. In addition, they learned about beading resources at the library, in the local community, and online. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and many said they had no idea that beading could be so easy and fun.
One attendee commented, "This was really enjoyable and relaxing! I could see myself taking up beading as a new hobby." Each patron took home two bracelets and a new appreciation for beading.
