We're so excited to announce the launch of Fairies & Gnomes: Imagine Their Homes! This is a summer learning project of the Mohawk Valley Library System, whose mission is to provide a summer of magical opportunities for families working together — using social-distancing guidelines and natural “found” materials — to build fairy and gnome homes at their own residences, on library lawns, in community parks and other local sites — wherever the shy and mystical “wood folk” might be found! Many thanks to 518 Rainbow Hunt for inspiration! Check out our website for more information and activities:
