Neighbors | Jessica Harker .Samantha Schneider, a librarian at the Michael Kusalaba library, helped community members design patterns to engrave on a mason jar glass July 1.


The Michael Kusalaba library hosted a Fourth of July themed glass engraving class on July 1.

Librarian Samantha Schneider hosted the event.

“We have hosted engraving glasses before, but this one is specific for the holiday,” Schneider said.

The library provided mason jar glasses for community members to engrave.

Kicking off the event community members worked on tablets to choose the design they wanted on their glass.

Schneider said that she picked out a number of designs to fit the theme that community members could chose from.

“It’s not a requirement though, anyone can do any design that they want,” Schneider said.

After choosing the design, Schneider used the laser engraver to etch the designs onto the mugs.
