Help Us to ‘Yarn Bomb’ the Library
Saturdays January and February from 9 a.m.- 12 p.m.
Remember the Yarn Bombing art installation last March which brightened the library with color and whimsy? Well, the “bomb squad” is at it again! If you would like to participate in this year’s yarn bombing project, we will be meeting every Saturday morning in January and February from 9 a.m. -12 p.m. If you know how to knit or crochet, feel free to join us for this exciting creative endeavor. If you do not possess those skills but like being creative, come join us anyway and we will find something fun for you to do. The Yarn Bombing display will appear on both floors of the library during the month of March. No registration necessary.
The Northland Public Library Foundation, through donor stewardship and fundraising, grows financial support to help fund and enhance the programs, collections and resources of the Library.
