Adult Craft: Paint Your Own Pottery

Join us at the Eaton Library as we partner with the Preble County Art Association to offer a “Paint Your Own Pottery” crafting class!

Participants will be guided through a painted pottery tile project as they learn three glazing techniques.  Choose from a selection of images to screen print onto tile and create a unique piece of art.  The best part is, participants can use the skills they learn to create new painted pottery pieces on their own!

After School Crew

After School Crew is the Storytime counterpart for ages 6-12. This group is designed to encourage education, exploration, creation, and teamwork. Meetings may include a mix of games, crafts, science experiments, and other play-based activities. Each After School Crew session meets for six weekly programs from 4:45-5:45 on Thursday evenings.


After School Crew is intended to help build phonological awareness, print motivation, vocabulary, problem solving, creativity, and communication skills in elementary-aged children.
