    Continuing from the fall session, all aboard for the next leg of our tour around the world, with Japan, Mexico, and Sri Lanka! Join us the third Tuesday of each month until June 2024, where we will discuss a title set in a different country and/or written by a foreign author.

    When you register, we will reserve a copy of the book for you - no need to place a hold, unless you would like to enjoy the book in a different format. When you pick up your copy, you will receive a Reader's Passport to keep with you for the year, in which you may keep notes as you read, draw something from the book that has inspired you, or bring up points you'd like to discuss during the meeting.

    At every meeting you attend, bring your "passport" to have it stamped. We hope to see you well-traveled by summer 2024!

    The Granny Squares for Warmth (GSFW) group was created in November 2020 as a Barrhaven-based group with a mission to create and donate hand-made blankets in the Ottawa area. ​

    In addition to blankets, members have also made and donated shawls, hats, and baby wear. ​

    Join us to crochet and join granny squares, to share and learn crochet stitches and techniques and to build a sense of community by making blankets for those in need. ​
    Everyone is welcome!
