I can hear the group before I see them. There is a low hum of conversation punctuated with occasional bursts of laughter coming from the room where they are meeting down the hall. As I round the corner and enter, about 20 faces turn toward me and smile. Many of them greet me warmly, but they don’t wave or shake hands. Their hands are busy. This is “Let’s Crochet”, a group that meets regularly at the Library.
