When Isabel Baxter-Paris was in the fourth grade, she started an initiative to knit scarves and hats for those in need in the Pioneer Valley. Knitters from all over the country participated, including Novel Knitters at Storrs Library, and over two hundred scarves were distributed in Pulaski Park in Northampton. This year, Isabel is asking once again for your help. If you know how to knit or crochet, please consider helping out by making a scarf or hat.
You can pick up yarn and drop off completed projects during Storrs Library Drop-By Curbside Pickup. Curbside hours are Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-6 and Saturdays from 12-3. Yarn will be bagged with 1-2 balls of yarn each, and available on a first-come, first-served basis. We cannot take yarn requests at this time. Completed projects should be returned during Curbside Pickup as well.
Bagged yarn and the donation bin will be on a cart at the top of the stairs to the main entrance. Donations should be bagged and must be returned no later than Saturday, November 7.
