Make a memory board at Summit

SUMMIT, Ky. — Patrons can make their own memory board at a special program at the Summit Branch of Boyd County Public Library on Aug. 10.

The program is part of the weekly Piece-ing it Together Craft Club, which meets each Monday at 6 p.m. at the branch, 1016 Summit Road. Once a month, there is a take-home craft, for which the library purchases supplies. The rest of the time, people can practice their own hobby, teach someone else or learn something new.

The Sept. 14 craft program is “learn to knit.”
