New Milford Public Library will celebrate Worldwide Knit in Public Day June 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Patrons are invited to knit and crochet at the Main Street library.

The special day was started in the spring of 2005 as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company.

It is now the largest knitter-run event in the world.

This year, over 500 events are being held in 40 countries, with each event put together by a volunteer or a group of volunteers.

For more information call the library at 860-355-1191, ext. 2.
