Knitting Club Begins

Knitting Club Begins

On Tuesday, September 25th, the knitting club will begin.  You may sign up in the library before it starts and bring $5 if you would like nice wood knitting needles.  If you prefer, you can use our donated plastic needles for free.  You will be taught to knit or if you know how, then you can work on a project during that time.  We will continue our club until the winter break.
