Love scavenger hunts? The library has a different scavenger hunt every month! Pick up a clue sheet at the desk. When you find all the clues, you can pick a prize from our treasure box! During open hours.
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.
