> What to read next? We at MPL try to make this age-old question easier to answer for you with our good reads site. There are several genre lists and award lists, but my favorite part is the Library Staff Picks. These are lists made up by your local librarians with loving care for your reading pleasure. The truth is that we love to read as much as you do and this is where we share our favorites.
I just finished my first crochet baby sweater! I’m so proud of myself. There’s so much satisfaction when you create something with your own hands. But the best part of any project is the planning. I love flipping through pattern book after book, dreaming of the projects I could create. I have a friend whose favorite part is buying the yarn, but I’m too cheap to do that until I’ve finished my current project. But looking for patterns is free at Manhattan Public Library! Whether you’re into crochet, quilting, or wood work, we have a wealth of materials for you to browse through and dream about.
