Ever tried yarnbombing? Want to take up guerilla knitting?
Then consider pulling out your old yarn and start crocheting or knitting in celebration of National Library Week.
The Lodi Public Library plans to cover the brick lampposts in front of the library with yarn creations kneedleworked by the community to draw attention to the library, Library Services Director Nancy Martinez said.
"This building is not the stuffy obsolete book warehouse that some may think it is," Martinez said. "Here's just one way for people to get involved — to discover what the library has to offer the community."
So how can you participate? Grab your leftover yarn and knit or crochet strips that are 6 inches wide and 100 inches long. The strip can be any color and created with any size knitting needle or crochet hook.
If you would like to participate, bring your creations on or before March 26 to the library. An assembling party is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 2, and then the lampposts will be covered at 9 a.m. on April 9.
