St. Louis County Library craft groups donated over 1,400 handmade afghans, hats, scarves and gloves to local charities at a ceremony on February 20th, as part of the Warm Up America program. This is SLCL's fifth year participating in Warm Up America. Customers and staff of the library have produced thousands of handmade items for this project over the years, both at home and during needlecraft programs. The items are donated to local charity organizations, which distributes them to their clients in need. This year's recipients include Crisis Nursery, Helping Hand Me Downs, Pathways Community Hospice, Fisher House, and Peter & Paul Community Services.
