Learning tradition

On a recent cold Sunday, participants enjoyed a warm afternoon inside the Groton Public Library learning traditional rug-hooking with instructor Sandy Langley, of Hudson, NH.

Langley brought kits and materials to choose from to get participants started on a hooked-rug project they could continue to finish at home.

The program was provided by the GPL Endowment Fund.
