KNIT A SQUARE IS BACK!
During the month of February the Adult, Teen, and Children's departments
are teaming up to sponsor 'Knit a Square',
a humanitarian program benefiting AIDS orphans in South Africa.

We will again be collecting 8-inch knitted or crocheted squares all month long. Each square will be sent to South Africa to be used in making blankets to keep orphaned children warm through the KASCARE non-profit organization.

Both experienced knitters and novices are invited to participate.
Squares should be made using US10 needles.
PLEASE LEAVE A LENGTH OF ONE AND A QUARTER YARDS (45 inches) OF YARN ATTACHED TO YOUR WORK WHEN CASTING OFF.
Detailed directions are available at the library.

Want to help and don't knit?
We will be collecting yarn donations, as well as monetary donations to help cover the postal expenses to mail the squares to South Africa. Collection jars will be located at both the adult and children circulation desks.

Knit a Square, Make a Difference Day at the Library
is Saturday Feb. 7th 1:00 - 3:00 pm.
Join in an afternoon of fellowship and knitting.
