   The Fourth Annual Sweater Weather tree will be on display this fall at the library. 
  If you would like to reserve a tree to decorate this fall, please contact Kelly Reed at kreed@richland.lib.wa.us or call the Children’s Department at 942-7452 or stop by the Children’s Desk to choose the tree you would like.
  If kids would like to get involved, we will have Finger Knitting sessions several times over the summer. Finger Knitting sessions will be Fridays, July 7th, July 28th and August 11th at 1:00 pm. You can also learn to finger knit at World Wide Knit in Public Day Saturday, June 10th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. If you can’t make it to a session at the library, you can find an online tutorial or check out a finger knitting book to learn how.

Adults who want to learn more about knitting can come to the By the Book Knitters Club, an independent study group that meets the third Tuesday of every month at the library to learn and have fun. Beginning knitters or those that crochet are always welcome to attend.

Participants can begin wrapping trees the week of September 11th. Saturday, September 16th is World Wide Spin in Public Day. We will have spinners and weavers working on projects, trees being wrapped and possibly other activities.

All are welcome to join us Tuesday, September 19th at 6:30 pm. We will begin with a tree tour while it is still light, followed by yarn-themed stories in the library lobby. The By the Book Knitters will also be there to answer any questions. Join us for a relaxing evening of stories and urban art. . 

Signing up for trees:


The first part is to get the 5 trees outside of the Children's windows to have very colorful sweaters. They are the RED circles

The 2nd phase is to do the large trees on the hillock and the 2 large trees in the parking lot. They are the BLUE circles.

The 3rd phase is to get the 9 trees along Northgate.  These trees are a mix of large and smaller trees. They are the PINK circles

The trees directly in front of the Library are reserved for the Children's Department.  The Green circles


Once all the trees are reserved, we can start on the trees along Goethals and the trees between the library and the former Delta High School.
