MCCC students have the opportunity to show off and sell their arts and crafts.

One Book, One Community will be hosting a community market and craft show from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m on Nov. 4 in the S Building dining room. This is a free event open to the public. 

Michele Toll, assistant professor of English, and Liz Hartig, faculty reference librarian/ public services at MCCC, are the co-coordinators for One Book, One Community. 

The market is a craft show and fundraiser for OBOC, and is intended to help people get more involved in the Monroe community. Participants can sell up to five homemade artworks or crafts at the designated student table. 

“General admission is free this year, but we will provide participants an opportunity to donate to One Book, One Community upon entry,” Toll said in an email. 

Kristin Iacopelli, grants manager at MCCC, is the organizer for this specific event. She said there will be many food options available.

“There will be vendors at the market, Royal Treats and Eats, Little Caesars and Kona Ice,” said Iacopelli. 

Iacopelli said along with food, there will also be live music.
