Thank you!!
For years, Chaz Esseltine, aka "the Origami guy", has volunteered his time and talent to share the joy of creating Origami at the library. Young and not-so-young have enjoyed making beautiful folded artwork under Chaz's direction and encouragement. The last two years, he has also shared his enthusiasm and skill of building with Legos, with kids, at the library. He only visits us once a year, but his visits are always much anticipated and enjoyed. This year, noting the sad pitiful little collection of Legos at the library, Chaz and his wife Adrienne made a wonderful gift of two HUGE sets of brand new Legos. Thank you so much, Chaz and Adrienne, for your generosity to Holderness Free Library!!
Enjoy the Story Walk Experience!
