The Crochet Club would like to send out a special thanks to Veronica Coons and Shirlee Jackson for their wonderful donations of yarn, hats, and scarves. The Crochet club will be wrapping up their Warmth for Winter Campaign on Tuesday, Jan. 31. This year they chose to donate items to the Hungry Hearts Soup Kitchen. If you know of an organization or a Charity that would benefit from the Crochet Clubs’ skills you can bring the information to the Welcome Desk at the Library or call the number above and ask for Liz.
