Homeschool: Volunteer Opportunity - Sleeping Mat Project (All Ages) 

Wednesday, February 15 from 12 PM to 2:30 PM 

Homeschool families are invited to join us for this volunteer opportunity. 

Did you know recycled grocery bags can create colorful, woven mats for homeless individuals in your community? Through a partnership with Integrate for Good and Angels in Motion, the Indian Valley Public Library is joining the project. Each week community members will join to learn different parts of the project including cutting bags, making loops, making "plarn" (plastic yarn), and weaving the mats on a loom.

If you plan on bringing a group of 5 or more people, contact Nicole Husbands at nhusbands@ivpl.org.
