Next time you are in the library, check out the clothesline at the Welcome Desk. The 5th annual Knit for Others program is well underway and a dedicated group of generous knitters has supplied us with a wide variety of knitted items for donation. We are always looking for more knitters so if you have time, please contribute an item or two.
This year we are focusing on collecting hand knitted or crocheted items for our youngest neighbors who need warm and fuzzy winter wear. So far we have hat and mitten sets, child friendly scarves, sweaters, and even a few afghans.
We will also be happy to take adult size hats, mittens, and scarves. Donations will be collected through the end of the year and distributed to area organizations in early January.
