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, 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.
