First time participants only, please. Open to teens in grades 6-12. Registration is required.
Do you already make custom jewelry, decorative home items, or other handmade products for sale or gift giving? If so, this course will teach you how to start an online shop for your unique line of handcrafted items.
In partnership with Etsy, a leader in e-commerce for creative entrepreneurs, Wallingford Public Library is offering free classes to help craft makers establish an online business to sell their products to a wider market and earn extra income.
Craft Entrepreneurship classes are taught by successful online craft sellers who coach and support participants through every aspect of setting up their online shops. Using Etsy as a learning lab, teachers share best practices on topics that impact new sellers most, including time management, branding, pricing, shipping, and photography, to help them earn supplemental income through their craft business. To minimize startup costs, students will be given the opportunity to list 20 items for sale for free on Etsy.com.
This program is presented in memory of Marcia W. Fix, an avid quilter, knitter and WPL librarian, by her family.
The Library will be closed on Sunday, February 19th and Monday, February 20th in observance of Presidents Day. Regular hours resume Tuesday, February 21st.
Due to inclement weather, the Library will be closed today, Thursday, February 9th.

This film explores how industry-backed, politically motivated "smoke screens" manipulate & mislead the public & elected officials. From the decades-long tobacco cover-ups
to the current climate change denial regime, watch the big-money, behind-the-scenes activity that influences our policy, behavior, and distorts scientific truth.
This may be the most important film to see this year.
View the film with moderators Scott Gray and Sonya Wulff. Refreshments will be served.
