Over 250 book “spines” are being added to a large quilt that hangs in the Scituate Town Library. A team of Scituate quilters helped to sew patches of fabric together to form a virtual “bookcase.” The Scituate Library Quilt Fundraiser is helping to raise money for the town’s new library facility. Individuals who donate money to the cause can have their name, a family name, or a meaningful quote added to the spine of a book on the quilt.
On June 5th the library at 85 Branch Street will be closing and the contents of the library will be moving to a temporary home at the Scituate Harbor Community Building, located at 44 Jericho Road. The temporary library will open on June 15 and remain at this location during the construction of the new library. The quilt will be hung in the new library.
