Please contact questions@westbanklibrary.com if you would like to schedule tech help or if you would like additional information regarding this library program.

Percussion and Strings

Assemble a band with items from you own kitchen. Recycled tin cans will make drums and shakers, and an embroidery hoop will make a mini-mandolin. Start saving those tin cans!

If you can’t attend the program, you can find the instructions for your own crafts here.
