On most Monday evenings, you will find a group of happy crafters trying their hand at needlework, making paper cards or enjoying a cup of coffee while discussing their latest crochet project. These ladies learned to tat during one of our sessions in May. These craft meetings continue the first and third Monday nights of each month all through the fall. Watch for new topics next spring!.
Dig Into Reading
Our new space was great for "Dig Into Reading" this past June, when Janine Surmick from Riverquest in Pittsburgh presented a cool underground session all about Marcellus shale gas drilling and water quality to the kids.
Current borrowers are urged to stop by the Library with I.D. to update their patron cards for use with the library's new computer system. The new system requires each person to update their information to get a new library card. Those under 18 need a parent to accompany them to update their information.
The Knoxville Public Library now has available for purchase a Table of Contents for the Centennial History of Knoxville written by Edwin A. Glover in 1951. This index makes looking for names and places in Knoxvilles history much easier. The Table of Contents and Index can be used also for Glovers Knoxville History that appears in the 2001 Sesquicentennial History of Knoxville.
