2021 Reading Rug Challenge

Looking for a project that involves reading AND crafting?

Adults are invited to participate in a year-long latch hook project in which you’ll create your own Reading Rug.

Pick up your rug kit from the library. After you read a book (or read for 4 hours), visit the library again to pick up yarn to fill your rug. What color yarn you receive depends on the genre that you read. Try to fill the entire rug before the end of 2021!
