Demonstrate your Knit Wit

November 15th, 2012

Libraries are as much places for building community and fostering creativity as for pursuing quiet study and reflection.  Join us for both when Steenbock Library hosts its ‘production socials’, Fridays, November 2-December 14, from noon until 1:00 PM.  During these socials, we will produce 7″x9″ squares to be stitched together into blankets to be donated to recipients identified by Warm-Up America.

Bring your lunch and join us in Room 240 (Steenbock Library).  Our entire community of library-users is welcome. Should you not know how to knit or crochet, never fear!  We have staff available to teach you a basic stitch suitable for the project.
Then, head to the stacks.  Should you be looking for some additional, creative inspiration, consider a short skein of titles from the Steenbock collection.
