Take & Make Craft Kits

The Library has created craft kits for children to take and make at home. All Library locations have a limited number of craft kits available with each kit containing items to create a craft and an instruction sheet. Additional supplies may be required and will be noted on the instruction sheet.

Movement Monday activities, brought to you by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, are also included in our Take & Make Craft Kits for children.

Share your creations with us by tagging our social accounts @nolalibrary or email

Crafts change every two weeks.

This program was made possible through the support of the Friends of the New Orleans Public Library.
