As a new school season starts, we at the library find ourselves changing with the season. This month we wish two of our talented team members, Rebecca Petty and Angie Wolf, a fond farewell as they pursue new opportunities.

These young ladies spearheaded Art After Hours and Cooking on a Budget. Though these programs will no longer be offered, we will host cooking classes led by the fantastic staff from the University of Florida Okaloosa County Extension Office. These classes will include foil pack meals and quick bread. Registration is required.

Petty also leaves a legacy in the form of our new Intro to Sewing classes, which we are proud to announce will continue under the instruction of a community volunteer.

Cooking classes will expand this fall with bread making basics, including sourdough, and a pasta class. We invite those with talent and experience in these areas who would be interested in assisting with classes to contact Jean McCarthy at 682-4432.

Coffee & Craft, on break for August, resumes with a limited class on acrylic resin pour painting. Supplies and spaces are extremely limited. Registration opens Aug. 12.

October will feature bandana pumpkins, a simple hand-sewn project. In November we will design a tulle turkey wreath. Closing out the year, we will paint glass ornaments in December.

Jean McCarthy is the Crestview Public Library's administrative assistant.
