So many of us want to help protect our neighbors by wearing face mask*, but we don’t want to prevent health care workers from having the supplies they need. So let’s do it ourselves. Learn to sew a simple face mask for your personal use with Lauren from the Leonard Library. View the broadcast on the Leonard Library Facebook Page at 12:00 pm.
