While I was working this past Saturday, I received a strange telephone call. The caller wanted to know about the Crochet Class at West End Branch Library. The class is taught by one of our terrific volunteers, Joan Black, every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. I gave the caller the information and she then asked for directions. I asked if she knew where Princeton Medical Center was and she said, “No. What train do I take to get there?” I knew immediately that something was wrong; the only commuter train I know about in Birmingham is Amtrak. I quickly found out that the caller lived in Brooklyn, NY and thought she was calling the New York Public Library. Apparently, she found our classes online and just assumed that we were in New York City, too. I recommended that she contact the nearest branch of the New York Public Library about Crochet Classes. We had a good laugh and wished each other a Happy New Year. Because of this incident, I started thinking about crochet and knitting resources.
