submitted by the Manchester District Library
Weekly In-Stitches Crafting Group: Wednesdays, November 1, 8, 15, & 29, 2017; 6:30pm-7:30pm
This weekly program is for anyone who would like to drop in and work on a crafting project in the company of other dedicated and knowledgeable crafters. Most of the group knits, so if you are a beginning knitter and need help, there is someone available to answer questions. There are also attendees who quilt, crochet, embroider, do needlework, and so on — and they are always happy to welcome new people. This free program does not require registration.
Food for Fines: Sunday November 5 – Sunday November 19, 2017
Help local families in need AND pay off your library fines. It’s a win-win for everyone! Receive a $0.50 credit against fines for every shelf-stable item donated, up to a maximum of $5.00 per library card. Expired items not accepted. All food items will be given to the CRC. Contact the CRC for additional information.
Weekly Adult Coloring Hour: Tuesdays, November 7, 14, 21, & 28, 2017; 6:30-7:30 pm
Every week on Tuesday evening, the Library hosts a coloring hour for adults. Coloring has been shown to reduce stress, so you can see this as a form of meditation. All materials needed are supplied by the Library. This program is free; no registration is required; and adults of all ages are welcome to attend.
Tea Time: Tuesday, November 7, 2017; 2-3 pm
Join the Library for its monthly tea time on November 7th. The Library will be serving tea and sweets in its adult seating area. Sit and participate in light conversation with fellow tea-drinkers, or enjoy your refreshments elsewhere in the Library. This program is free and open to all.
