Brrrr, the trees are bare and there is a chill in the air…winter is fast approaching! Have you ever wondered how snow is formed and why no two snowflakes are alike? Stop by the P.D. Brown branch and pick up an educational take & make kit that will explain the science of snow, the life cycle of a snowflake, and interesting snow facts. And, each kit will include instructions and supplies to make a delightful craft masterpiece. 

*No registration required. Kits are available December 1st – December 10th, while supplies last. Limit five kits per household.*

Kits can be picked up during regular business hours at the P. D. Brown branch. Curbside pickup is also available upon request. To make a curbside request, please call the P. D. Brown branch at 301-645-2864. One hour advance notice is needed for curbside kit requests.

After enjoying your kit, please take time to fill out our online Program Survey (a mobile-friendly version can be found here) so we may better serve you.
