HARRISVILLE – As fall begins to fade and winter begins to arrive, Alcona County Library staff are offering residents a few activities they can partake in during November.
As always, each Thursday residents are encouraged to join the community walking club which meets in the library parking lot at 9 a.m. Social distancing will be practiced and face masks will be required.
The only Thursday that the library will be closed will be Nov. 26, Thanksgiving. For additional information on the walking club, contact library staff at 724-6796.
Additionally, the weekly story time and craft for children will continue each Friday at 10:30 a.m. in November, with the exception of Nov. 27. Staff said masks will be required to attend and social distancing will be practiced.
The following week, on Nov. 17, The Alcona Book Club will meet at the Harrisville branch at noon until 1 p.m. This month’s selection is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Interested parties can contact library staff with additional questions.
On the same day just 15 minutes later, the Knitting Klub & Crochet group will meet until 3:15 p.m. According to staff, all ages and levels are welcome to participate.
On Wednesday, Nov. 18, library staff will offer a String Art Grab N Go project for teens. Participants can choose one of four patterns at the library for their craft. According to staff, the craft will be available while supplies last.
To kick off the final full week in November, staff at the library will have a Craftomania event for adults. Interested patrons will have the opportunity to create a macrame feather wall decoration. Registration is required to participate, seating is limited and the cost to participate in three dollars. Participants are asked to bring a dowel or a stick.
According to staff, the program is brought to you by a grant from the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs. Similar to all aforementioned events, staff will have social distancing measures in place.
