Use your creativity to help others

Knitting needlesThe Blanchard Public Library is giving back with its weekly Brown Bags and Blankets sessions, set for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. most Wednesdays, with upcoming events on Oct. 25 and all Wednesdays in November.

The goal of the program is to create blankets, hats and other knitted or crocheted items to be donated to local organizations.

The group already has donated items to the Veterans Administration Hospital and Children's Hospital, and has plans to continue spreading their work to those in need across the community and beyond.

Registration is not required to participate.
