 Do you like to crochet or would you like to learn? Join us the last Thursday of every month in the library's meeting room @ 10:30 am. Come work on an existing project or we can help you get started with our own yarn and hooks all while you enjoy a cup of coffee, provided by the Friends of the South Houston Library.
