March 2015 Programs and Classes

So much to do at Apopka’s library this month. Here are some highlights…

Of special note this month is our new 3D Printer! We are offering a number of 3D design and printing classes for adults, children, families, and Spanish speakers. We also have a contest to name the new 3D printer. Register for a 3D printing class and get an entry form to name our makerbot replicator!

Also new in March: We are also starting a weekly Teen Knitting Club at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, and we are starting two new monthly book groups, one called “Off the Shelf” and the other in Spanish called “Tertulia Cuatro Gatos.”

We are excited to announce the start of two new book groups at our branch! Join us for the inaugural meet ups. Check out the details below.
