Lisa Whitney (far right) recently attended a meeting of the Ephraim Kirby Chapter #75, OES in Litchfield. She collects plastic shopping (grocery) bags which she makes into PLARN (plastic yarn). She then crochets them into mats for the homeless to use. She gives the mats to Brian's Angels to be distributed.

He taught them how to create a simple cartoon using basic shapes on a large sketch pad and described the process for getting them published. They took the finished cartoons home to share with their families.
Take Your Child to the Library Day is a free, fun, family-friendly event supported by the Connecticut Library Consortium and endorsed by the Association for Library Service to Children (a division of the American Library Association), Reach Out and Read, and Read to Grow.

A lego table was also available for younger visitors to the library.
