PPLD Challenge: Try a New Hobby or Craft

Primary tabs

Program Description

Event Details

Start 2021 by trying a new craft or hobby! Perhaps you have always wanted to learn a skill like 3D design or knitting. Or, maybe you have a project in mind that you would like to complete. Either way, use the New Year as inspiration to innovate and try a craft or hobby that is new to you and share the results with us!
Post a photo of your project on Facebook or Instagram any time from January 15th - 31st and make sure to include the hashtag #ppldchallenge and tag @ppld to be eligible to win. Alternatively, you can send your photo to ppldchallenge@ppld.org  and we will post it to social media for you! Randomly selected entries will be featured on PPLD’s websites and social media accounts and one randomly drawn entry will receive a gift certificate and prize pack of curated craft books from the Friends of the Library.
