Join us for an opportunity to help others by making handmade blankets for people in need.

Supplies will be provided by the Library. Optional: Attendees are welcome to bring one yard of Blizzard* fleece as a donation. No special skills required. Register
Blizzard fleece is a very good quality fleece. Your local fabric store should be able to help you locate it if you are planning to bring a donation.
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet: sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors that can whisk people far away. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through.
*Program will be held at Panera, 1211 Half Day Road, Bannockburn.
