Kid Crafts - Make a Gift Coupon Book

Create a personal gift coupon book at the Traverwood Branch on Tuesday, December 23, between 10:00 and 11:30 am. using envelopes, ribbon and calligraphy pens. School ages and up are welcome. Younger ages will need help from an adult during the project. If you like to get into the mood for a craft, read The Book Of Coupons by Susie Morgenstern. It is one of my favorite "chapter books" to read aloud to elementary school age children.

What's the oldest board game in the world?

This Sunday, October 19, 2-3:30pm come join the Ann Arbor Go Club enthusiasts at Traverwood and learn to play Go!

Try Go Basics or Go for Beginners or just show up on Sunday.
