The Sleeping Mat Project
Helping the Homeless, While Recycling!
Did you know recycled grocery bags can create colorful, woven mats for homeless individuals in your community? Through a partnership with Integrate for Good and Angels in Motion, the Indian Valley Public Library is joining the project. Each week community members will join to learn different parts of the project including cutting bags, making loops, making “plarn” (plastic yarn), and weaving the mats on a loom.
Anyone is welcome to join us!
Contact Nicole Husbands at firstname.lastname@example.org for information or with questions.

Poets and poetry lovers are invited to Forgotten Voices Poetry Group, held on the first Saturday of each month at 1 pm at the Indian Valley Public Library. The group has been meeting at the library for more than 20 years and is led by Joanne Leva, creator of the Montgomery County Poet Laureate program (MCPL). All are welcome. This event is free and open to the public to share the poetry they’ve written, read poetry that they love, or simply listen to poetry read by others; guest speakers are sometimes invited to conduct writing workshops.
