Can you knit and purl? Would you like to learn? Looking for more adventurous projects? Join us for a knitting group! Share ideas and expertise while working on independent projects or knit-alongs. Making use of the wealth of online information from sites like Ravelry, we'll work together to create knitted items. We can expand our horizons to other crafts like spinning, weaving and lace-making as time goes on. Interested? The Knitting Club meets every Monday at the Board Room in the Lower Level at 6:00 pm.

Summary: Nina is a harried young mother who spends her evenings spying on the older couple across the street through her son's Fisher-Price binoculars. She is drawn to their quiet contentment - reading on the couch, massaging each other's feet - so unlike her own lonely, chaotic world of nursing and soothing and simply getting by. One night, through that same window, she spies a young couple in the throes of passion. Who are these people, and what happened to her symbol of domestic bliss?
In the coming weeks, Nina encounters the older couple, Leon and Claudia, their daughter Emma and her fiancé, and many others on the streets of her Upper West Side neighborhood, eroding the safe distance of her secret vigils. Soon anonymity gives way to different - and sometimes dangerous - forms of intimacy, and Nina and her neighbors each begin to question their own paths.
Computer classes will resume in May. Stay tuned for dates and times.
