KNITTING/CRAFT GROUP

Knitters/crafters of all skill levels welcome. Please bring projects you are working on. This will be a laid back meeting of knitting/crafting, sharing and asking for advice. For access to the ZOOM Knitting Group - please contact ivyhope@stoningtonfreelibrary.org. We will now be meeting outside of the library on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month and the others will be on Zoom.

SFL staff will continue to wear masks inside the library and ask that all visitors do the same. Our patrons include a younger group that is unable to be vaccinated at this time. In order to set an example for them, and in an abundance of caution to be sure that they and others unable to be vaccinated are safe, we ask that all patrons continue to wear masks. Thank you!
