Montgomery County Public Libraries Launches Creativebug

For Immediate Release: Friday, November 30, 2018

Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) and Creativebug, a leading go-to resource for do-it-yourself (DIY) crafters and makers, will begin offering free, online video classes on Dec. 1. This unique partnership will provide MCPL customers, with library cards, unlimited access to more than 1,000 award-winning arts and crafts video classes taught by recognized design experts and artists. 

There are creative projects for every occasion with downloadable patterns, templates and recipes. From sewing to drawing, Creativebug offers something for everyone to create.

“DIY has become increasingly more popular, the maker movement emphasizes learning through doing and there are over 250 million active Pinterest users,” said MCPL Acting Director Anita Vassallo.  “Offering Creativebug supports our strategic plan objective of increasing programs and resources for independent use.  We hope our customers will be delighted.”
