Take part in Worldwide Knit in Public Day and join the Morrill Memorial Library’s “Norwood Knits in Public,” hosted in the gazebo on the Norwood Town Common. This event will be casual and social, and will be a happy gathering of knitters, crocheters, and whatever other fiber artists want to come. Basic beginner instruction may be available if you bring your own materials – please email to inquire. Street parking is available around the Common, and light refreshments will be provided. Bring whatever project you’re working on; materials will not be provided. Feel free to bring whatever you need to be comfortable outside – after all, this is New England! In the case of inclement weather we’ll meet in Perks Coffeehouse, 685 Washington St in Norwood.

World Wide Knit in Public Day is the largest Knitter run event in the world. It started in 2005 and, as of 2016, is celebrated in 57 different countries.

Return to Viet Nam: POW/MIA Recovery Mission

Photo-of-recovery-mission-teamMonday, June 19th, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Join us at the library for a very unique program. Michael H. Cunningham, a longtime Norwood resident, Viet Nam veteran, retired U. S. Customs official, and author of numerous books about Viet Nam and homeland security, has recently returned to Viet Nam on a recovery mission with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA.) On this trip, Cunningham and the POW/MIA team searched a mountainous area west of Tam Ky, Viet Nam for the remains of a fallen soldier lost in a horrific battle on July 29, 1968.

Cunningham’s presentation tells the story of America’s loss and attempt to recover the remains of this fallen hero. In this touching and heartfelt story, you will witness the endless means our country goes to in an effort to bring all her fighting men and women home. Please register for this program by calling 781-769-0200 x110 or 222, filling out the form below, or visiting the Reference or Information desk in the library.
