Curious About: The Cottingley Fairies
Children Ages 6-11 | Storytime Room

Learn a little about the Cottingley fairies, sample some fey snacks, and make a fairy light jar. Participants will also explore photography tricks and use the library’s green screen to capture their own image with a fairy friend.
