Spring Sheep Craft

Create your own adorable, folk art-inspired craft that's easy to make at home.

Paint the sheep, add a woolen coat, ears, and eyes, and your stand-up sheep is ready to go! Call the library at 508-324-2700, ext. 3, to reserve your sheep for curbside pickup. Available while supplies last.
 
Thank you to woodworker Andrew Santos for his generous contribution of wooden sheep!
