Community Make-a-Square project

Knit or crochet an 8 x 8” square.

Volunteers will join squares together to make soft, warm, colorful twin bed-sized blankets.

Please use soft acrylic yarns for non-allergenic properties and ease of care in washing/drying. Making the squares as consistent in size (8x8”) and weight (worsted yarn) as possible helps volunteers to join the squares quickly and easily into blankets.

Get creative: If you know how to knit and/or crochet and enjoy working with different stitches, or a combination of stitches and patterns, then please feel free to be creative with your squares, as long as the finished square measures 8x8”.

Visit the library for more details and take-home instructions.

book club

The library will be closed on Monday, Nov. 11 for Veterans Day.
