Celebrate Earth Day by recycling, recrafting and restyling unwanted materials at this month’s edition of the Norman Public Library’s “Teens on the Make” program, set for 2 p.m. Saturday, April 21, in the Lowry Room of the library, 225 N. Webster Ave.
The program is offered for students in grades 6 through 12, who will use a variety of materials to make a new masterpiece or two to take home. There will be supplies provided by the library, but participants also are encouraged to bring extra materials. Among those suggested are clean No. 6 plastics, thick plastic bags and pieces of cloth.
Support in providing some of the supplies for the program has been given by the Friends of the Norman Library.
Earth Day is an international celebration to increase awareness of Earth’s environment. It actually takes place April 22, with the first Earth Day taking place in 1970. It’s celebrated today by more than 500 million people in 175 countries.
Registration is highly encouraged for “Teens on the Make” and can be completed at the library, by calling 701-2620 or online here .
