Lincoln Library offering variety of September programs
LINCOLN — The Lincoln Library at 222 West River Road has a variety of programs lined up for the rest of the month.
Organizers are starting a weekly knitting group at Lincoln Library beginning this Wednesday, Sept. 14. They will meet Wednesday evenings at the library from 6 to 8 p.m. Anyone and everyone is invited to bring their knitting, crocheting or other handwork and then sit and chat with neighbors while you work on your projects.
If you don’t knit but want to learn, come and see if someone would be willing to show you how. Call Patrice at 453-4127 for more information.
This Wednesday will be a busy day on River Road. The “Coloring Group” will meet at the library at 10:15 a.m. The Lincoln Library hosts a weekly group for adults who like to color. The library has books and colored pencils, but feel free to bring your own. Call ahead to make sure that this group is meeting. It is a small gathering.
At 1 p.m. the same day, the library will host a talk on the old Bristol airport. Reg Dearborn will deliver an informative talk and slide show on the history of the old Bristol airport, which was located on the property where the Mount Abraham Union High School is today. It is always interesting to find out about places near or in which we live. Refreshments will be served.
Here are events and activities happening later in the month:
• Caregiver Group: Friday, Sept. 23, 1-2 p.m. Join with other folks who are dealing in some way with a loved one or friend who has a chronic condition. By sharing and listening, people find support in this intimate setting.
