Join us for a special presentation with Zoo on the Go at the East Forest Park Branch Library. Zoo on the Go is an exciting, hands-on program that is interactive, fun and educational way for children and adults to learn about a wide variety of animals.
Join our group, where pop-culture fans of every kind can explore their favorite characters and create stories of their own through fanfiction. We’ll have advice sessions for beginners and writing prompts. You’ll even have an opportunity to submit your work to the library’s teen blog!
Grab some needles and yarn, then come join us! Newcomers always welcome. | Adults
Whether you knit, crochet, cross-stitch or crewel, this is the place for you. New members are welcome and current members are willing to teach their skills. Some yarn and needles are provided, but donations of such items will always be welcome. Many of the finished items are donated to charitable causes. Coffee and tea will be provided compliments of the Friends of the Library.
