Welcome to the website of the Greenfield Public Library in Greenfield, Massachusetts! If you need to get in touch with us, our address, phone number, and email address are on the Contact Us. page. We look forward to serving you either in person or with any of our electronic resources.
Greenfield Public Library is seeking quilters to help beautify our walls and get the word out about all the things you can do at your library.
Each quilter will design and sew a quilt incorporating a word describing something you can do at your public library: read, laugh, dream, learn, etc. The Library will provide the words and pre-cut batting and backing, and the quilters will do the rest. Sizes will be: 3 feet by 3 feet, 2 feet by 3 feet, 16 inches by 5 feet, and 3 feet by 5 feet. The quilts will be hung on both sides of the adult stacks, where seating areas have recently been created.
If you’d like to participate, contact Marjorie Curtis or Hannah Fjeld at the library at 772-1544 to sign up. You will choose a word from our list, let us know what size you prefer, and we’ll let you know when your backing and batting is ready to pick up. We hope to have a show and tell of works-in-progress during National Library Week, on April 15th from 4-7pm. The quilts should be completed in time for a reception at the library on June 21.
This project is being funded by the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library.
