Have you ever wanted to learn to knit, but don’t have the tools and aren’t sure who to ask? This program is for you! Several librarians, who happen to be veteran knitters, will lead a workshop about how to knit, from casting on to binding off. The class will work together on the same project, and all materials will be provided in a kit for $5.00. After you’ve taken the Learn to Knit Class you’ll be able to join us later in the month for Stitch Therapy to continue working on your project.

Space is very limited, so call 781-769-0200 x110 or email norprograms@minlib.net to sign up or if you have any questions! Participants must be 14 years of age or older.

Learn about the art, history, and symbolism in Norwood’s own living history museums – its graveyards. Cemetery educators, The Gravestone Girls, whose mission is to “Keep Our Dead Alive,” will be presenting a virtual tour called “Welcome to the Graveyard,” centered on Norwood’s local cemeteries. Their 90 minute presentation is built on photographs recently taken in these special and interesting burial places around Norwood, and charts the evolution of cemeteries and gravestones from the colonial era into the 21st century. This popular program has been given for over fifteen years across New England by The Gravestone Girls. To learn more about The Gravestone Girls and their work, please visit their website, www.GravestoneGirls.com.

Registration is required. To sign up for this unique program, call 781-769-0200 x110, email norprograms@minlib.net, or visit the Reference or Information Desk. “Welcome to the Graveyard” will be partially funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
