Opportunities at the library – The Hamburg Reporter


At the library with Nancy Middaugh

Are knitting, reverse and flaps part of your vocabulary? Otherwise, a unique opportunity is offered to anyone in the region interested in learning to knit.

The Hamburg Public Library will host a knitting class for beginners taught by Amanda (Hall) Vette. The course begins on Monday June 13 and will meet every Monday and Thursday until July 18, with the exception of July 4. The course will take place in the basement of the library from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

All ages are welcome and there is no charge for this class.

The class will work on two basic projects: a tea towel and a hat. Knitters will receive yarn for both projects and two sets of knitting needles.

To learn more or register, please email [email protected] or call 382-1395.

Another opportunity available at the library is adult coloring. The group meets the first Tuesday of each month from 2-4 p.m. The material is provided. Join us for relaxed conversation and creativity.

Friends of the Library sponsors a book club on the third Tuesday of the month at 11 a.m. Anyone is welcome to join this group who loves to read. Books are provided so there is no charge. In their next session, the band will discuss Agatha Christie’s “The Mysterious Affair at Styles.”

In August, the library will revive a tradition that was put on hold for a few years due to Covid. We are heading out in August to read beyond the beaten path with our 2022 Summer Reading Program. It will be held on three Wednesdays – August 3, 10 and 17. As in the past, there will be a session from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. for students in grades 2 to 5 (entry year) and from 11:15 a.m. to noon for 3-year-olds – 1st grade.

Each session will include a story hour, a craft activity and a snack. For more information, contact the library staff. Registration before Thursday, June 30 is appreciated so that the appropriate material is available.
