No-Sew Fleece Throw Blanket Craft Program Featured at Germantown Library as Library Lovers Month Program

Teens, adults and seniors can learn how to make a “No-Sew Fleece Throw Blanket” at a free program to be held at Germantown Library on Saturday, February 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. Craft instructor Sandra Whitaker will teach participants how to make their own blanket. The program is free but participants must purchase their own supplies. A list of supplies is available at the library located at 19840 Century Blvd.

Registration – limited to 25 persons -- is required and must be completed by February 7 at 5 p.m. Register online.

The blanket craft session, the first of its kind at Germantown Library, is one of the Makerspace programs that are gaining popularity across the country. A Makerspace program provides access to spaces – such as in libraries or other community-based centers -- where the public can gather to design and create do-it-yourself projects by sharing equipment, educational opportunities and guidance.

To request sign language interpreter or other deaf/hard of hearing services for library-sponsored programs, email MCPL.DeafAccess@montgomerycountymd.gov, preferably with at least three business days notice.

The library’s meeting room is equipped with an audio induction loop system for people who use hearing aid amplification with a telecoil switch or cochlear implants.

To request the audio induction loop system – or for other program accommodations -- call the Germantown Library at 240-777-0110.
