Library to offer Knitting Class & Other Classes

By Elisabeth Altamirano-Smith/ Community Columnist

 

The Chilton/Clanton Public Library is planning a new class schedule for the community this coming fall. This year as soon as school begins, the library will offer a variety of classes, and hopes to include an introduction to knitting group.

“Right now, we are reaching out to the community to see if there is an interest in learning how to knit,” said Librarian, Renee Chambers. “All of the classes and everything we do here will be free to the public.”

The knitting group will teach the basics of knitting, but Chambers said all skill-levels are welcome to attend.

“We hope that others that are more advanced in knitting will come and assist those that are just beginning to learn,” said Chambers. “We will start a project such as how to make a baby blanket.”

Clanton resident, Pam Jones will provide instruction for the class. All knitting materials (needles and yarn) will be provided.

“We haven’t set a date for when knitting will begin yet, but know that it will be during the weekday,” said Chambers. “Once we have several signed up we will announce the date that the group will begin meeting.”

Other classes offered to the community include a Lego Day, which will be every Thursday beginning August 5 from 3-5 p.m. There will also be a monthly craft project on the second Tuesday of every month beginning September 14 at 3:30 p.m.

Chambers is also interested in speaking with individuals in the community that have ideas about new classes that the library can host, during normal business hours or after.
