Send kids to craft day while you hit the mall

What do you have planned for the kids on Black Friday? Surely not hitting the malls on this day, the annual launch of the gift-buying frenzy. Why not head for your local library instead?
A number of Sno-Isle libraries are offering free craft-making sessions. The libraries will supply the materials and the kids can bring their own creativity to make such things as fridge magnets, peanut butter bird feeders, buttons or duct tape whatevers.
Kids can even make their own "Angry Birds" out of pompoms and rubber bands.
The libraries listed below will all participate. Call your local branch for the day's activities or check online at
• Brier, 1 to 3 p.m., 425-483-0888, ext. 3420.
• Mill Creek, 1 to 4 p.m., 425-337-4822.
• Mountlake Terrace, 1 to 3 p.m., 425-776-8722.
• Mukilteo Library, 1 to 2 p.m., 425-493-8202.
• Oak Harbor, 2 to 4 p.m., 360-675-5115.
• Sultan Library, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., 360-793-1695.
Also, kids 12 and younger might want to stop in at the Monroe Library any time before Dec. 18 and enter the Bikes for Books contest.
Write a little review describing a favorite book for a chance to win a bike, courtesy of the Sultan-Monroe Masonic Lodge and the Friends of the Monroe Library.
The two winners, a boy and a girl, will be announced at a scavenger hunt at the library on Dec. 21. The "hunt" through the library's catalogs begins at 1 p.m.
Call 360-794-4141 for more information about the contest.
