The art and science of cooking will be demonstrated at the Nov. 8th "Freezing and Dehydrating" workshop. Adult attendees will participate by making a jar of jam to take home.

Hillsborough sends a shout out in December to ugly sweater fans with an art program planned to create their own. On Dec. 13th adult patrons are invited to build a website on Wix, a cloud based web building platform.  

By the holidays, adult patrons will be ready with a card, a gift of jam, an ugly sweater to wear, and a website to share with their online community - all created with their newly developed STEAM skills!
