Kids Knitting at the Keene Public Library

The library has a commitment to offering knitting programs for children.  Knitting is a great creative outlook that can help kids in the intellectual development.  It can be a relaxing activity, yet it requires concentration and math skills.  And, knitting is a great activity for boys as well as girls.

An informal knitting circle is usually offered on Tuesday afternoons in the Youth Department's Programming Room. Check our online calendar to see if knitting is offered now!

Because knitting isn't just for kids, we invite interested adults to join us too!
