We're Not Just a Library Anymore!
If you have stopped in the library since the start of the new year you may have noticed two exquisitely crafted pieces of a crochet that we have on display. Created by the library's own Sue Books, the first is an adorable red hat adorned with a pink flower. The second, a red and white afghan, looks cozy enough to curl up in. The next time you're in, stop in and take a look at these beautiful pieces.
Do you have a piece that you would like to place on display as well? The library is looking to put your handcrafted pieces on display this month. Don't knit or crochet? No worries! We're accepting any and all crafts or artwork that are handmade (paintings, sculptures, carvings, etc.). All you need to do is stop in, pick up and fill out a display form, and bring in your masterpieces. We cannot wait to see them!
Do you knit already? Or have you always wanted to learn? Stop on in the library on the January 11th from 10:30-10:45 am or January 21st from 10:30-11:30 am for Knitting with Lani. The same goes for crochet. On January 25th, from 4:00-5:00 pm, we will also be hosting Crocheting with Lani.
(Please bring your own skeins of yarn and knitting/crocheting needles)
On Saturday, January 21st, we will also be hosting "Lego my Library!", the library's first ever Lego-themed program. Open to all ages between kindergarten and eighth grade, the program will run from 12:30-1:30 pm. It is sure to be a hit!
(We ask that you please stop in and sign-up to let us know beforehand)
On a final note, please be reminded that the library will be closed on January 16th in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Hoping that you're sticking to those New Year resolutions,
Salem Township Public Library
