Chester County Library’s 11th Annual Holiday Craft Fair Coming Up This Weekend!

Make it a homemade holiday!

The holiday season is a busy time of year. Family gatherings and finding the perfect gift for loved ones can be frustrating and stressful. With time being a precious commodity, remember that the library can be your best destination to find all of your family entertainment, holiday de-stressors, and party planning ideas, as well as unique, one-of-a-kind holiday gifts for everyone on your list!

The Chester County Library will be hosting its 11th annual Holiday Craft Show on Saturday, December 10th, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Vendors will be set up throughout the library (both upstairs and downstairs) to display and sell their crafts just in time for the holidays. We have a great selection of 47 vendors this year! Save some holiday shopping and enjoy browsing local crafter’s tables including makers of personalized ornaments, toys, pottery, jewelry, paper crafts, photography, knit and fabric crafts, home décor, baked goods, woodworking, and more! The Craft Show is free to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
