Dunlap library starts scrapbook program

Adam Larck

Dunlap residents will soon have a chance to preserve memories thanks to a new program at the library.

Starting Oct. 1, Angela Beddingfield will host a scrapbooking program that will let participants make one new layout each month.

“We’re going to develop a scrapbook where, instead of taking and scrapbooking every event that you do in your life, since that just takes too much time for many people, we’re just going to make one scrapbook layout per month,” Beddingfield said. “Then, we’ll just put a picture from whatever events happen during that month.”

The program will go from 10 a.m.-noon on the first Saturday of each month until September 2012.

Besides doing a paper scrapbook, Beddingfield, a Dunlap resident, also will teach attendees how to make digital scrapbooks.

“There’s online websites where you go to and click everything right in, order it and they mail it to you,” she said. “So, people can bring their laptops and make it right there — I’ll teach them how. Or, if they don’t have a laptop available to them, they can come and I’ll just be showing them in class on the PowerPoint how to do it.”

She added that she will be making a scrapbook along with participants, as well as helping them out.

Currently, a display is set up at the library for people interested in the program to go in and get an idea of what the program will be.

“They can go in, take a peek and kind of get an idea of what type of scrapbook we’ll be creating,” she said.

Beddingfield said that the class will be $35 for the year, and will include a scrapbook and all the supplies needed.

“It’s a really good deal,” she said. “There’s a separate fee if you already have a scrapbook, and that’s $15.”

All registration is being handled by the library, and can be done by calling 243-5716.
