  • Knit One, Read Too
    Bring your knitting or crochet projects and craft with us at Richmond Memorial Library. We'll meet in the Reading Room of the library. This is not a class. Knit One, Read Too offers a place for those who knit or crochet to meet and work together on their own projects. We hope experienced people will share their knowledge with beginners and that everyone will find inspiration in seeing other enthusiasts' projects. No registration is required. Just bring your needles or hook and come enjoy the company of your fellow yarn lovers. New members always welcome.
