Libraries Events

Knitting Club

The "Knitting" Club meets every Friday after work (5ish) on the second level of Starbucks.  The club is working on a group project -- knitting sections of a planned blanket to be auctioned off to benefit LSA -- but welcomes anyone with crafty projects.

Kat Hart (from left), Trevor Diamond, Sandy Magnani, Kelsie Crawford, Rachel Parnell and Julia Thomas gather at a recent Knitting Club.
