Are you ready to take the ‘Alpha Reader Challenge’? The goal: 26 letters in 52 weeks! Through December read books with the featured letter of the alphabet in either the beginning of a word in the title or in the author’s name and enter to win books or gift certificates from local businesses. It’s easy: simply fill out a very short form at the library’s main desk and drop it into the jar to be included in the monthly drawings!
Herr Library group knitting for charities
Every Tuesday at 11 a.m. a group of up to ten women meet for coffee, conversation, and knitting at the Herr Memorial Library. Ranging in skill level from beginner to very experienced, the members of “Special Stitches” create a variety of handmade items for charities. More knitters are welcome to join the group. While members must provide their own needles and yarn, patterns and coffee are supplied.
