Crafting in the library is popular with certain groups within all age ranges. If you have the resources, you could use some of the craft links you find here to put on a program where your patrons get to make X, Y, Z craft. Or…
If your library uses Pinterest, setting up boards for seasonal crafts and food may make your Pinterest account more relevant to your patrons. This gives them the information and potentially the inspiration to make the craft or decoration themselves, at their leisure, where there is no issue with schedule conflicts that prevents them from coming to the program.
I have compiled a few lists of links to fall crafts and fall cookies (just for fun) that may interest your patrons. There are so many more out there, these are just a few!
10 Links to 100+ Fall Crafts
If you have crafty patrons who would like to make some decorations for a fall party, want a new centerpiece for Thanksgiving dinner, or just think something looks neat, these links are for you. Some of these links are for individual projects, many of them are for round-ups of craft links. I guess you could say this is a round-up of round-ups.

Okay, so maybe I just put in cookies for fun. But who doesn’t love a tasty cookie? And, again, your library could create a board on Pinterest for fall cookies for your patrons to make at home. These cookies are inspired by fall flavors like apples, maple, caramel, and the ever-popular pumpkin. Enjoy!
