Whether you are new to knitting and crochet, or have been enjoying this relaxing craft for years, you'll love our weekly Knitting & Crochet Group here at the library! Come join others in the NMPL Conference Room this afternoon at 1:30pm for a relaxing time to work on your current craft projects and to meet new friends!
Beginner and eager to learn? You'll find a helpful teacher here! Beginners should bring a pair of needles (size 6 to 9), and a skein of light colored, worsted weight yarn. Worsted weight yarn is also labeled 4. Light colors are recommended as it is easier to see individual stitches with the light color. All are welcome!
The North Manchester Public Library is one of 500 libraries to receive an exciting new citizen science resource from the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM). The Test the Waters Family Exploration Kit is a fun, accessible, loanable kit which includes four family friendly activities, and all the instructions and materials needed (audio file guides are available in Arabic, Chinese, English, Spanish and Vietnamese). By knowing the facts and becoming aware of the role and importance of water to our lives, users will have the information and resources to keep their family safe and healthy.
The North Manchester Public Library will post a series of virtual programs demonstrating each activity in the kit. The kit will be made available for checkout shortly thereafter.
During this second session, we'll go Down the Drain! Find out what storm drains have in common with the clean water you drink. You will see and feel what is going down the drain... be prepared!
We’re excited to share this incredible resource with our patrons and hope you’ll enjoy watching and learning along with us!
The mission of the North Manchester Public Library is to provide materials, programs, and services necessary to meet the recreational and educational needs of the community in an easily-accessible facility, which is a community center of activity and information.
