People of all ages are welcome to participate in building fairy homes from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. June 24 at Moscow Public Library.

The library has put on the event for more than eight years, and it is popular among all ages, said Bailey Gillreath-Brown, adult services librarian.

Supplies are offered specifically for kids and adults to make fairy homes, she said. 

Supplies include a basket full of natural items such as twigs, bark and feathers, along with craft items including wooden shapes as well as miniatures perfect for making a cozy fairy home, Gillreath-Brown said.

All supplies will be distributed during the event, said Stacie Echanove, youth services librarian. Supplies are also available for people to take home if they are unable to join the in-person event.

The library hopes to keep the fairy homes over the summer for people to enjoy, she said. 

The event will be held outside of the library and participants are asked to stay within their groups to maintain social distance. Masks are encouraged but not required, Enchanove said. 

Participants are encouraged to take pictures of their fairy homes and send them to programming@latahlibrary.org with their name and age group for a chance to win prizes, according to a Latah County Library District release. 

Participants can catch a glimpse of the prizes, which are a surprise, the day of the event, Echanove said.
