A Greener Chanukah: Virtual DIY Upcycled Menorah Workshop

Date(s) - Sunday, November 7th - Sunday, December 5th
All Day


dsc0801-version-2Check out the video below to see Milwaukee Public Library teach us a craft where we will upcycle old objects to create a fireless menorah that your child or grandchild can safely light each night of Chanukah. Jannis Mindel, Children’s Librarian at the Good Hope Library Branch, demonstrates how to create this fun and beautiful menorah. Then find out why upcycling is an important way that we can create a more sustainable earth with a kid-friendly tour of Scrap Yard: Innovators of Recycling.
