Help your neighbors in need keep warm and toasty! If you like to knit, you can earn community service hours. Donate your knitted or crocheted scarves or hats to the library to receive 10 hours per item. There is a limit of two knit items per student. Donations are accepted September through March.

Drop your donations off with Katrina Hohlfeld at the library.
Open to Nyack School District students.
