Northland Library March Events

Part 1

SECOND ANNUAL YARN BOMBING DISPLAY What the heck is Yarn Bombing? Yarn Bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fiber rather than paint or chalk. It is also known as yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, kniffiti, urban knitting, or graffiti knitting. Beginning March 4 and continuing through April 7, both floors of the library will be decorated with whimsical displays of hand-crafted yarn-based projects and there will be hidden surprises for children to find. AARP TAX PREP IN 2018 – BY APPOINTMENT ONLY AARP is offering tax prep for senior citizens and low-income residents.
