DeKalb Public Library
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM on Sat, 11 Dec 2021
The holidays can be a very difficult time when you’ve lost someone dear. Celebrations which previously brought joy, can feel very isolating. One way of coping with this is through honoring and remembering our loved ones, through new rituals. <br/><br/>Consider joining Northern Illinois Hospice and the DeKalb Public Library for a Memorial Ornament Workshop. Create a special ornament in honor of your loved one. We’ve even had people create them for beloved pets. This workshop is free of charge, and all supplies will be provided to create your unique and individualized ornament. If you’d like you can bring a small photo, bit of fabric which is meaningful or a very small personal item for use in or on your ornament. There will also be additional information available on coping with loss during the holidays. <br/><br/>This is a masked, socially-distanced event. Please register at dkpl.org, as space is limited. Children should be 6 years of age or older, if 12 or under accompanied by an adult. Registration will close on Thursday, December 9. <br/><br/>For additional information or help with registration, please contact Samantha at email@example.com or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1701.
