They went up around town yesterday and are the result of the effort of the Darien Domestic Violence Task Force. There are 84 ribbons, each one representing a dometic abuse/violence call to Darien Police during the fiscal year 2007-2008. The ribbons will be up throughout the month of October because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
The Library is an active participant in the Task Force. The Proclamation will be here at the Library this Thursday, October 2nd at 11 a.m. On Friday, October 3rd at 7:30 p.m., we will be showing the film, The Color Purple downstairs in the Program Room.
Our annual knit-a-thon will be from 3-5 p.m. on Friday, October 17th.
We'll be knitting scarves and hats for the benefit of those staying in the shelters run by the Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC).
The knit-a-thon is open to adults and children. Registration and previous knitting experience is required. Patterns, knitting needles, and yarn will be provided. Final drop-off of hats and scarves will be on Friday, November 21. Register at the Children’s Room desk: 669-5235.
