Lauren Cape and Lynda Decker will be your hosts and teachers. Already know how to knit? Come for the fun! If you are unable to attend a meeting, come when you can, you don’t have to be at every class. If knitting, bring #8 needles and yarn of any color. If crocheting, bring G or H hooks and Peaches & Cream cotton yarn of any color.
Bargain priced beach reading is the featured item this week at the Bookshelf. We have books by popular authors Debbie Macomber, Suzanne Brockman and Nora Roberts and more at half our usual price this week. Stock up on books you don’t have to worry about at the beach or pool.
If you enjoy books and meeting people we hope you’ll volunteer to help out at the Bookshelf. No prior experience is required and the work is all fun. Willing hands are needed to sort and clean books, work a shift at the Bookshelf, or just mail a book occasionally. Applications are available near the register inside the Bookshelf.
Bookshelf hours are from 10:30-5:00 on weekdays and from noon-2:00 on Saturdays.
