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!
