The Abbot Public Library invites teens are invited to warm up at the library by making fleece hats, hand warmers, and cozy cup holders. We provide the materials, you provide the creativity. Once you're nice and toasty, make your own ice cream sundae and dream that it is summer outside. No sign-ups necessary. Please let us know if you'll be attending so that we have enough refreshments for all, by stopping by the Library or calling the main desk.
