The Stitch Doctor Is IN!

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! 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!

Please contact Adult Services Librarian Liz Reed to schedule all appointments and to answer any questions about this service. Liz can be reached at 781-769-0200 x110 or lreed@minlib.net.

We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more. Our book for April will be The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta; copies are available at the Reference Desk. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 4/28 @ 7:30!

Sign ups are not required, but appreciated! To sign up, email norprograms@minlib.net, call 781-769-0200 x110 or 222, or visit the Information or Reference Desks.
