Take Your Knitting Outdoors - Summer Knitting Program

The Granby Free Public Library’s “In-Stitches” knitting group is holding their “Take Knitting Outdoors” Knit-a-Thon as part of the Adult Summer Reading Program.

Knitters and crocheters are needed to make hats and mittens to help the people of Ukraine and to benefit local veterans and their families. For every item donated you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $50 gift card for Webs Yarn Store in Northampton. While you are at the Library you can take part in our Yarn Ball Guess Jar for a chance to win a $25 gift card to Webs.

Book Group

Thursday, August 11th at 6pm

The Group will be reading The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller. Stop by the library to grab a copy.

Joining a book group has great benefits.  You will be encouraged to read more, explore outside genres you normally read, and make new friends.  The Granby Library Book Group covers a wide range of genres which include both fiction and non-fiction titles.  Group members vote on titles they want to read a few months in advance.  The discussions are always very lively and entertaining.  Upcoming book titles are available at the library in different formats - regular print, large print, and audio.  

Upcoming Book Group Titles: 
September - Once There Were Wolves by Charlotte McConaghy
October - The Girls in the Stilt House by Kelly Mustian
