Knit-in to get in

Pull some yarn together for knit-wrapped invitations to the next Halifax Central Library public consultation.


What do yarn wrappings and the new Halifax Central Library have in common? Imagination, which is just what the people behind the Central Library's steering committee are looking for. Bring your knitting apparel---or use what's provided---and help make tree wrappings at the Foggy Goggle knit-in on Monday. After the pieces are done, the wraps will be put on a few trees at the corner of Spring Garden and Queen streets (marking the future site of the new library) with an invitation to the Central Library's first 2010 public consultation session attached to the yarn. "Yarn wrapping is a fun, witty way to draw attention to the consultation and get people thinking creatively about what a new library will mean to them," says Ryan Deschamps, the e-learning manager at the Halifax Public Libraries. Knitting and wittiness put aside, Deschamps says the bottom line is to get people to the consultation on June 10 at 7pm in the McInnes room of the Dalhousie Student Union Building. Create knit-wrapped invitations to get as many voices to the McInnes room as possible. –Holly Gordon
