This Month in the Edge

This month, we have several activities going on in the Edge. Drop-in activities will be available during Edge hours all through the month of December. Scheduled programs take place at specific times, linked below. Please join us for one or all!

Drop-in Activities:

Holiday Cards
Make holiday cards for your family and friends. We've got all the card-making supplies you'll need, plus some video tutorials for making cards to celebrate various winter holidays. A holiday card example is featured above.

Gift Wrapping
We've set up a gift wrapping station with wrapping paper and ribbon. We sourced our supplies secondhand from Retake Remake, a creative reuse organization based in Peekskill, NY, so you can wrap your holiday gifts sustainably.

Year Compass
We love the Year Compass, a booklet designed to help you reflect on 2022 and plan for 2023. We've printed out several copies; come in and pick one up, or sit and write. You can also download a digital copy here.
