Little Hats, Big Hearts


Calling all knitters and crocheters- and those who want to learn!

The library is collecting handmade hats for preemies and newborns with congenital heart defects in partnership with the American Heart Association. We are collecting hats now through Tuesday December 18th.

We are happy to give you a crash course in knitting or crocheting, and we have some supplies for anyone who needs help getting started, though supplies are limited.

Don’t forget to join the Stitch2Gether Ravelry group to share patterns and ideas!

Here are some patterns to get you started:

Yarn specifications

  • Red
  • Cotton or acrylic
  • Medium to heavy weight
  • Machine washable and dryable

Simple hat patterns only, please. Extraneous bows and buttons can come off the hats and pose a safety hazard for the little ones.

See Maura or Allison in the library for additional information!

‘Dear Evan Hansen’ and ‘Be More Chill’ will happily bring you back to High School…


Two of the biggest Broadway sensations – ‘Dear Evan Hanson’ (Nov. 2016) and ‘Be More Chill’ (March 2019)  – are now available at our Library. If you’ve seen the musical, you will want to read the book – and if you read the book, you’ll run to see the musical!

‘Dear Evan Hanson’ is penned by original playwrights Benj Pasek and Justin Pau, who transfer their Tony Award winning musical about the emotional ups and downs in families, high school and relationships into this new ‘must-read’ novel.

Ned Vizzini is the writer behind ‘Be More Chill’, which follows the high school days of self-described ‘dork’ Jeremy Heere who swallows “the squip” one day,  which transforms Jeremy ‘from geek to the coolest guy in class’. The novel (written in 2004) has become a an off-Broadway musical sensation, and transfers to Broadway in March 2019. Sure to be a Tony winner in 2019!
