You can find me at the Media Desk and helping people with their Interlibrary Loan requests. I love to talk (and learn more) about spinning, knitting, weaving, crochet and any other fiber arts you can mention. Need assistance with a pattern or technique? I might be able to help. I am currently reading (and being inspired by) An Everlasting Meal by Tamar Adler, The Circle by Dave Eggers, and Made from Scratch by Jenna Woginrich. Current projects: making special gifts for new babies, cooking new recipes, discovering old (but new-to-me) crochet stitches, and getting my floor loom warped.

  1. Hi Susan. Sorry for the delay in responding. The good news is YES we do have one DVD special all on the St Louis Cardinals. It’s called “The St Louis Cardinals. Greatest Games of Busch Stadium 1966-2005” and has 6 discs of Cardinals awesomeness. It’s checked out right now but you can put it on hold through the catalog or call Reference and do it over the phone. That number is 785-580-4555. Thanks!
