Now through the January!

yarnFellow knitters and crocheters: are you swamped by swatches? Incensed by increases? Peeved at patterns? In knots over SL1 K2TOG PSSO? Oh, and do you have a gift deadline? We can help! From now through the holidays, the knitters and crocheters of the Morrill Memorial Library will be available by appointment to help with knitting and crochet quandaries. Please bring all of the materials for your project, including needles and patterns. Also, please let us know ahead of time what sort of project you’d like help with, in case we need to look up a new technique. A second pair of eyes can’t hurt!

DamNation

Condit_Dam“DamNation” (2014) is a powerful film odyssey across America that explores the change in our national attitude from pride in large dams as remarkable feats of engineering to a call for removal of dams that interfere with the Earth’s ecosystems. Beautifully filmed, this study of dams and the damage they can cause to wildlife, soil, and plant life is both inspiring and informative. The documentary runs 1h 34mins. This program is sponsored by the organizations Together Yes (Sustainability Series) and the Neponset River Watershed Association.

Please sign up for this program by visiting the Reference or Information Desks or by calling 781-769-0200 x110 or 222, or email norprograms@minlib.net.
