Yarn Drop

Yarn Drop

Is your yarn stash overflowing?  With many new craft and arts programs on the way, the Library can put all those unused skeins you’ve accumulated to good use.  For one day only we will be accepting donations of clean yarn in good condition in our Activity Room.

NOTE The location of the Yarn Drop has been moved from the YS Activity Room to the Lobby.  If you brave the weather today, please use the provided bins to leave your donations.  Some are marked for yarn only, while those on the right are meant for supplies.  If you bring a bin of your own to leave, please put it to the right of the donation area along the window wall.  Thank you for all your wonderful contributions!

Donation Guidelines: Bring us any color yarn, in any type of fiber – we’re looking for a wide selection.  Donations must be either wound into balls, or dropped off in full skeins – please no yarn barf or tangles.  In addition to yarn, you may also donate knitting needles, crochet hooks, felting needles, blunt tip needles, embroidery hoops and floss, felt sheets, beads, buttons, and adult crafting scissors.  Heavy duty plastic storage tubs with lids are also welcome.  No other craft supplies or items will be accepted.

Any supplies in good condition the library cannot use will be donated to Goodwill, and items in poor condition will be thrown away, so please make your selections accordingly.

Any questions, please contact librarian Bekah Jarvis-Girtler at bekah@colonielibrary.org or call (518) 313-6312
