  All Day Knowledgeable Knitters   Would you like to learn how to knit or crochet? Or, are you working on a knitting/crocheting project and would like to socialize with new friends while you work? Would you be interested in helping create a “group blanket” for Project Linus? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are invited and welcomed to join our Knowledgeable Knitters group! For beginners, the group is a great way to practice and learn new skills. (And, we have materials to get you started!) For more experienced individuals, the group allows sharing of projects and ideas. All ages are welcome! Knowledgeable Knitters meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 5:45 to 7:45 at the Rochester Public Library. Registration is not required.
 
  All Day COAT DRIVE   During the months of December and January, the Rochester Public Library will be holding their annual Coat Drive. Accepted articles for the collection will be new or gently used coats, both children and adults), hats, scarves, and gloves. Donations are being accepted at Rochester Public Library through the end of January at #1 Community Drive, in Rochester. For further information please contact Susan at (217) 498-8454.
 
  8:30AM 5:00PM Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art   Figurism: Narrative and Fantastic Figurative Art brings together historical and contemporary body-based art by over fifty artists from the Illinois State Museum collection. The exhibition emphasizes the power and the range of the narrative and expressive uses of the figure in Midwest art. The artworks were selected to create a better understanding and consideration of different representational styles and the ability of the figure to carry feeling, memory, and experience. They were also selected with an eye toward something fantastic—a heightened sense of the super-real or super-natural—whether through aggressive, expressive form, high-keyed color, inventive graphics, or ambiguous situations. The Museum is open from 8:30-5:00 Monday through Saturday and from 12:00-5:00 on Sunday. Admission is free. Parking is available nearby and the building is ADA accessible. For more information contact Jim Zimmer at 217-782-7440.
 
  4:00PM 5:00PM Project Linus   Would you like to give your time and support to children in hospitals? If so, please join us for group blanket-making sessions for Project Linus. Project Linus is a non-profit organization that provides handmade blankets to children (infants to teens) in hospitals for security and comfort. No experience is necessary; we’ll show you how to make the blankets! Drop in during any of our blanket-making sessions-you’re always welcome!
 
  3:00PM 7:00PM Blood Drive   The Central Illinois Community Blood Center will be partnering with the Rochester Public Library for a winter blood drive. This will be held at the Rochester Community Room, located at the Rochester Public Library. Everyone is welcome, registration is not required.
