Curious about the needle arts? The Morse Institute Library in Natick, Mass., will not only lend you books on knitting and crocheting, but it’ll also spot you the implements you need. Patrons can check out needle and hook sets for up to nine weeks with two renewals—”plenty of time to complete an awesome scarf, hat, or pair of mittens,” according to the library. People with a Minuteman Library Network library card can also partake of the kits. “Libraries want to be centers of learning,” Anna Litten, the library’s community relations coordinator, told MetroWest Daily News.
