I spy with my little eye…the entire world around me! Have you ever wondered how our eyes work and what makes them such an essential organ? Stop by the P.D. Brown branch and pick up a fascinating Take & Make kit that will explain the science behind our vision and maintaining a healthy vision. And each kit will include instructions and supplies to make an adorable craft masterpiece. 

*No registration required. Kits will be available while supplies last.*

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 Library 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.

We encourage participants to share their finished artwork by sending a photo to: pdbrownref[at]ccplonline[dot]org.
