Arts and Crafts Supply Swap


Day-Riverside Library Branch

1575 W 1000 N, Salt Lake City

Free Admission

Come find new art supplies and get rid of your old ones at our community arts and crafts supply swap! Bring a handful of supplies you don't want anymore and swap, barter, give away, or donate them with your other creative neighbors!

Please come even if you don't have supplies to swap. Many attendees will have items they are giving away for free to good, crafty homes, and there will be a freebie table as well.
