The Crochet Knitting Club at the East Chicago Public Library has provided women with a place to gather and hone their craft since 2016. Originally meeting at Heritage Hall, the club moved to the Main Library when the Hall closed for rebuild.

The club has about 10-15 women who regularly meet but is open to everyone. Along with working on personal crochet and knitting projects, they also make items for charity. In the past, they have made blankets for patients at the Providence Hospice and hats and scarves for the Mitten Tree.

The club meets every Thursday at the Main Library from 11 am to 2:30 pm. Anyone interested in participating and joining the club can come to the Thursday meeting, or for information call 219-397-2453 ext. 12.

The Crochet Knitting Club is just one of the adult programs the East Chicago Public Library offers. Many other programs are available for everyone of all ages. You are encouraged to learn more!


The library is a grantee of the Foundations of East Chicago. To learn more about grants offered, visit
