Lady V’s Crochet Group at Ensley Library

by Alisha Johnson, Ensley Branch Library


On any given day at the Ensley Branch Library, we interact with patrons in a way that goes far deeper than books. Some of our patrons are regulars who come in and share life’s experiences and struggles, while some are more reserved and their communications linger just on the surface. So we thought that it would be helpful and therapeutic for our patrons to have the opportunity to come into the library, where crocheting is the focal point, and connect with others who may be feeling or experiencing some of the same things or different ones at that moment in their lives.

Many of our people in our community are living and coping with difficult situations and we can only hope that coming and talking with others will provide some relief from the day-to-day issues of life. We anticipate that our members will appreciate the great aspects of group crocheting, such as teaching and learning together in the community and accessing deeper levels of friendship among one another. We also hope that, in one way or another, this group will inspire and encourage each other to make it through life’s challenges while crocheting a hat or two.

The crochet group is geared towards beginners and all are welcome. We will meet on Tuesday afternoons from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and refreshments will be provided. The first class is scheduled to begin on September 19, 2017. We hope to see you there!
