The Austintown library hosted a DIY Moon Phases T-shirt making event on June 6.
Librarian Amelia Dale organized the event.
“It’s a fun activity that fits in with the theme of our summer reading program,” Dale said.
She explained that this years theme is “A Universe of Stories” focusing on space themes.
The event was organized for teens with all supplies provided by the library.
“It’s really not as hard as you think to make a really cool design you could have bought in a store,” Dale said.
To kick off the event, Dale walked teens through how to create the T-shirt.
Teenagers used white, gray and black paint on black T-shirts to create the look.
Dale provided stencils and showed teenagers how to use sponges to create realistic moons in its various stages.
“It’s often hard to create programs for teens,” Dale said. “But I thought this project was a really cool DIY.”
She said that a number of other programs will be available at the library throughout the summer for summer reading.
