Tuesday, September 16, Noon to 2 p.m.

Those who are craft challenged can learn to produce lovely hats using knitting looms. Even if you have never put needle to yarn, the Itch-to-Stitch group will have you turning out beautiful projects.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month from noon until 2 p.m. Knitters and crocheters of all ages and abilities are welcome.

Don’t say you can’t until you try. Bring your lunch and any craft supplies you have on hand.

Order forms return to subject order

Beginning with the September–October 2014 issues, the order forms for Braille Book Review and Talking Book Topics will return to listing books in the same order as the titles appear in the publications. The order forms will also include subject category headings to assist with navigation. Patron demand for this reversion has far exceeded the requests that prompted the original change to numerical order in the May–June 2014 issues.
