Troke Knitters
Troke Branch Library
Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Every Wednesday from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. the Margaret K. Troke Branch Library presents "Troke Knitters."

Knitting provides many benefits, such as new friendships and benefits for health issues such as pain, depression and stress relief. Our presenter, Martha E. Zetter, Holistic RN, CRM, Ret., has been knitting "since I was 5 years of age; … not a day goes by in which I do not knit. The benefits I have experienced from this craft are too numerous to mention."

In our community, there are many needs for knitted goods such as for chemotherapy patients, preemie hats, and hats and scarves for children and adults. The community also needs lap robes and shawls for chemotherapy and dialysis patients, who become very cold during treatment. There are needs for Twiddle mitts for dementia/Alzheimer patients and for mats for our four-legged creatures in shelters. Participants may keep their products for their own use or donate them to one of these charitable causes.

For beginners who wish to learn knitting, Ms. Zetter will offer informal instruction. If participants want to gather for the camaraderie and knit for themselves, they are also welcome and will be recipients of her assistance as needed. All ages and genders from 8 to 100 (or more!) are welcome.

Participants need to provide their own needles and yarn. Supplies are available at local craft stores. Participants should bring:
  • Their choice of acrylic yarns, worsted weight, e.g. Lion brand homespun, soft Red Heart, Caron Simply Soft or other brand of soft yarn (no wool)
  • Size 7 or 8 knitting needles, preferably circular needles
  • Scissors, large-eye darning needle and package of stitch markers
  • Notebook and pen
Continue the learning by checking out books, reviewing online databases, and searching the Internet – all for free at your local public library!

This free program is provided through the generosity of the Stockton Friends of the Library.  The Margaret K. Troke Branch Library is a part of the Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library and is located at 502 W. Benjamin Holt Drive in Stockton.

Genealogy Workshop:
Troke Branch Library
Saturday, Oct. 15, 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Beginning your pursuit of family history can seem a daunting task.  Every beginner stumbles into research pitfalls. The biggest challenge is knowing how to evaluate and verify genealogical information and determine what constitutes acceptable documentation of the facts and piecing the correct chain of evidence to the facts about your family genealogy.

Join this session hosted by the San Joaquin Genealogical Society to gain a heads-up on what to do—and what to avoid—as you delve deeper into the mysteries of your own family's roots. The presenter will give some interesting and funny examples of erroneous genealogy, as well as supply tools to get you started in your own research.

After the presentation, members of the San Joaquin Genealogical Society will be available for individual help in online research. Feel free to bring your own laptop or use one of ours.

Space is limited! Those interested in attending this workshop must sign-up online or at the Troke Branch Library Information Desk or call (209) 937-8221.

For further information, email the Society at sjcogensoc@gmail.com.
