Fairy home building

On Saturday, Oct. 6, from 11 am to 3 pm, the West Tisbury Library will offer its back garden as a haven for fairies and their homes. You are welcome to bring your own natural building materials: bark, shells, seed pods, sticks, carved out pumpkins, feathers, fur, pine cones, moss, lichen, dried plants, etc. Some materials will be provided, but it is also fun to share. Come make a fairy house, and cookies and lemonade will be provided to all the builders. If the weather looks iffy, call the library. There will not be a rain date.

For more information, call 508-693-3366 or email
