Girl Scouts book drive

Thanks, Germantown Girl Scouts!  These hard working gals held a book drive and donated all the books, magazines and DVDs they collected to the library.  Then they spent Saturday morning helping us sort books, check for duplicates on the shelves and in the online catalog and generally learning what happens to a book from the time it comes into the library until it’s ready to go on the shelf.  We received many, many great adult, junior and children’s books.  The items we couldn’t use will be donated to St. Joseph’s hospital for their annual book sale.  But before sending them on to the hospital, the girls and their leaders had some fun building a Christmas tree for the library out of the books!  Stop in and see it when you can.  It looks very festive and after the holidays, all those books will be donated to the hospital.  We thank the girls, their leaders and all who donated books to help our library continue to grow.

Knitting Club

As the fall days get cooler, our thoughts turn to cozy sweaters and scarves and you know what that means.  It’s time for knitting club to meet again.  This group is open to anyone 8 years and older.  Meetings are held at the library on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, beginning Nov. 3.  Each class runs from 6:30 pm to 7:45 pm and all are welcome – from beginners who want to learn knitting, to those who already knit but may need help or advice with a project.  The cost is $10 for the entire year (November through May) and you should bring a pair of sharp scissors, a size 8 or 9 knitting needle and practice yarn.
