Help Clean Marine Mammals in Gulf
Tuesday, July 13th
2:00pm – 4:00pm
Ages 10 and Up
The North Shelby Library is participating as part of Craft Hope’s Project 8: Gulf Coast Oil Spill. Craft Hope have partnered with The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, the Audubon Nature Institute, and the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge to assist them in their efforts in caring for and cleaning oiled marine mammals, mostly dolphins, other marine mammals, birds, and sea turtles. They are asking for people who can sew, knit, or crochet to create sets of hand towels and/or wash rags to send. Please join us as we knit some rags to send to the gulf to help.

Note: You do not need to know how to knit. We will be using a Knitting Loom with help from an instructor if you don’t already know how.
Also, if you can’t make it, we will be taking donations of rags and washcloths to send to the gulf
