It's time to start your charity knitting and crochet projects for the 2015 KnitFit Community Knit-a-thon! The Knit-a-thon will be held at the McConnell Library on Saturday February 21st from 10 am - 5 pm (with a snow date in case of a major storm on Sat Feb 28th). Find out all about it here, and get your pledge sheet to support children's literacy programs at CBRL. All finished items are donated to local charities that help Cape Bretoners in need. Don't knit? You can still help by donating supplies or by sponsoring a knitter! Donation boxes are at all CBRL Branches and bookmobiles. Come and join the fun!
Are you stuck in a reading rut? Discover a new genre at the library and you could win! Check out the library's new genre guide full of books you would probably like if you gave them a try. Whether you're a fan of westerns or a die-hard book clubber, there's something for everyone. Read a book from a genre that's new to you and post a review of it on the library's Facebook page or e-mail your review to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28, 2015 and you'll be entered to win a swag bag!
