Library services to homeschoolers

It is great to see the Overstrand Library’s calendar of in-person events returned to normal after the pandemic drastically altered activities for, especially, school children.

On Tuesday, 20 September 2022, the Hermanus Library hosted a crochet class for beginners for the Hermanus Home-schoolers.

Crocheting and knitting are both practical life activities to help develop concentration and fine-motor co-ordination - even if you've never held a hook before or don't know a slip knot from a single crochet or double crochet stitch.

In addition to finding books, libraries are a great place for people to get connected again, especially those with same-age children or similar hobbies.

Residents who are not library members yet, can join by filling out a membership form and handing the completed form in at their local library, together with a copy of their ID and latest municipal account.
