Gather to talk about books while doing crafts. Share what we are reading, favorite authors, and craft projects, which can be crochet, knit, or anything else. Register to receive a Zoom link.

After a long winter, come share the crafts you are working on and the books you've read: Tell us about your favorite authors, what you are reading right now, or even books you didn't like! Work on your crocheting, knitting, or other projects and show us what are doing. Share creative ideas for new crafts. 

For new project ideas, the Akron Summit County Public Library has lots of books, including A Year in Crafts:  52 Seasonal Projects to Delight or Inspire by Clare Youngs.

Join us virtually on Zoom and connect with our community!

About the branch

The Highland Square community is one of festivals, celebrations, eclectic shopping and dining experiences, and diverse citizenry, from seniors and families with young children to artists and college students and educators. The Highland Square Branch Library is a reflection of this vibrant neighborhood, with a collection that includes rich resources in Holocaust and LGBTQIA (GLS) studies, among many, and a programming schedule that includes writing workshops and opportunities to meet local authors, book discussions, film marathons, art studio experiences for young people, and much more.


Reference assistance, computers and computer classes, WiFi, copiers, scanning, and faxing round out the services provided within the library. The full scope of community participation, however, is seen in local senior care facilities, local schools and preschools, the area farmer's market, and neighborhood festivals where Highland Square Branch Library staff plays an active role in creating experiences for participants of all ages. Visit us soon on the Square.
