Announcing the Knit Wits: Teen Knitting Club!

Every summer, we do Camp Knit-a-Lot at the library and when it's over, everyone asks for a monthly knitting program for teens. We've taken the plunge and starting this month, we will be offering Knit Wits, a teen knitting club, the last Tuesday of the month at 6pm. Just bring your latest projects and supplies. Miss Sharon will be on hand to help you untangle your knitting problems. See you on Tuesday, November 24th at 6pm for our first meeting!

Visit with Fire Investigators Tom Petty and K-9 "Hunter"

 

 

Last week, Tom Petty and K-9 "Hunter"provided an informative program on fire safety for families. 

During the program, children learned several key things that will keep them safe from danger.  

  • Recognize a smoke detector and know what sound it makes.
  • If you hear an alarm or see/smell smoke (do not hide - go outside).
  • Officer Petty showed examples of lighters and matches.  He explained that these items  are tools for adults, not toys. 
  •  Then Hunter demonstrated how to crawl on the ground to safety.  

After the program children took time to meet our guests and have their photograph taken.
