Want an interesting and creative way to organise your tasks and keep track of your life?
Join us for a workshop on how to make a bullet journal. It’s more creative and flexible than just making a list! You can adapt it for your own personal style; make it as fancy or as plain as you want. Bring your own journal/notebook to get started in and something to write with. You can eat your lunch at the workshop.
Where: the library makerspace
When: Monday, October 30th at lunch
Who: You, hopefully
