Youth and family programs are important parts of any library, but the Hildreth Public Library has begun focusing on a diverse adult program as well. Library staff uses public suggestions and generous volunteers to create events and classes that cover many interests.
An engaging sewing program for youth in grades 2 through 8 has prompted a new library sponsored program for adults. Monday evenings through June, Hildreth Public Library is hosting a sewing class for adults taught by volunteer Pat Beck.
Beck volunteered to run a youth sewing program at the library that began last fall. Kids signed up for different times to use donated machines. The first project they made was pillow cases. Around Christmas time, they made table runners which several of the kids gave as gifts. In May, they made swim bags to hold their swimsuits and towels through the summer.
