U Can Create @ JCPL at Meeting Room 1/2/5/6
Jan 23 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

U Can Create will get your creative juices flowing, while spending quality time with your family.  This hands-on program will feature a new project or activity each month and is geared for preschool aged children through adults.  As always there is never any charge to attend
our programs.

In January, families will create a 2019 goal board.  Families will brainstorm things they would like to accomplish or places they would like to visit and decorate their board with the ideas.  Once these goals have been accomplished it can be replaced on the board with a picture of your family completing the goal.

Registration is required for this program and will open on January 9 .  Please register your family/group together as one registrant.  Children ages 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
