Snellville Branch is hosting its second annual KnitCon on December 2-5! KnitCon is a four day program all about knitting/crocheting! Stop by the branch for an hour, two hours or the whole day and knit/crochet for charity. Don’t know how to knit? We can show you! Featuring guest speakers, fun activities and daily giveaways.

If you are not able to attend, you can still drop off a cold weather accessory for donation at the Snellville Branch.
