Learn techniques for knitting, origami, crochet and tatting. Kits come with supplies (yarn, paper, etc) you can use up – plus books, DVDs and tools that you’ll need to bring back. Kits check out for 21 days. Upon return, the library will restock for the next person.

Bring in your completed piece and let us know how you enjoyed your project. This is a new service of the library so we’re looking forward to your feedback. Leave a comment if you can’t come in.
