Please join us as we work on our current WIPs (works in progress), talk, learn, share patterns, or swap yarn. If you don't know how to knit or crochet, we can show you how! Please bring your current project with you; or, if you want us to show you how, please bring a ball or yarn and some knitting needles or a crochet hook--you can find them inexpensively at our local craft stores where staff are always happy to help.

Are you planning to get some volunteer hours this summer? Want something to do on Tuesday mornings? Do you like working with younger kids? Did you volunteer for Book Buddies last year? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please attend our training for Book Buddies volunteers. To get this new & improved six-week program going, we will be exploring new ways to help younger children with their reading over the summer, including making some of our own reading games and tools to keep reading fun. We're interested in your ideas too--please come and share them! Sign up at the front desk or call 937-8221 and ask for Kaye @ Mountain House. Sponsored by Mountain House Friends of the Library.
