Macramé

Wednesday February 28th 6pm

Join South Hero’s own Christel Nase of Meadow Lane Macramé for an intro to macreame basics. We will learn a few simple knots: including the “square knot” and the “clove hitch” and practice our knotting technique on our own “Mini Macramé Wall Hanging”. Please sign up by calling or emailing the library so we have enough material for everyone. There will be light refreshments and please bring fabric/sewing scissors if you have them.

Join Our Friends Group!

This is a very exciting time for the South Hero Library! If you are looking for ways to contribute or participate, join our new Friends Group!  Your skills, time, and savvy are needed to help take us to the next step and beyond. We will be having an information session about the Friends Group Wednesday January 31st at 6pm. If you are unable to make this time and still want to help, just let Keagan or Penny know and we can make sure to keep you in the loop.

Mah Jongg

Join us every Thursday at 3:00pm for Mah Jongg. Starting September 14th.

Mah Jongg (or Maahj, as it is often called) is a fascinating, rummy-like game played with tiles rather than cards. The game originated in China but its exact origins are shrouded in story and myth. Some claim it was the game of Chinese royalty, played in secret to keep the knowledge to themselves. Others claim it was invented by a Chinese General to amuse his troops during long months of battle. More recent investigations point to early versions of this popular tile game appearing as recently as 150 years ago in China as a variant of card games. Whichever story you choose, there is general agreement that the game we play and love originated in China, and popularized in the United States by Joseph Babcock at the beginning of the 20th century.
