Just in time for winter, SPL’s teens are teaming up with the Warm Up America! Foundation to craft blankets for those in need. We will collect 7” x 9”worsted-weight acrylic squares from the Sacramento community and then join them to create afghan blankets. Click here to view crochet and knit patterns. Warm Up America! consists of volunteers from all over the country who have distributed thousands and thousands of handmade afghan blankets, clothing and accessories to individuals and families in need. Drop completed squares off at any Sacramento Public library (you don’t have to be a teenager), and help make the coming cold a little more tolerable for those less fortunate.
Have a happy, safe and delicious Thanksgiving—from the staff at Central Library!
