Enjoying themselves to the hilt were (L/R back) Librarian Anne Gault, Astrid Bevans, Nancy Jones (both wrapped in a completed blanket).

The idea is so radical in its simplicity that it defies the imagination as to the broad scope and effectiveness of its reach throughout the entire world.
All you need to join in this worldwide event is some wool and a couple of knitting needles. You don’t have to be artistic or techically minded by any stretch of the imagination. All you need to have is a desire to do something wonderful for those less fortunate than yourself and the ability to knit. To further make this charity more accessible – if you can’t knit and you still want to participate – all you have to do is take yourself and your knitting needles and wool down to the Grenfell Library every Wednesday morning at 10am on the 11th, 18th and 25th of July and the final session on August 1 – and one of the lovely knitters there will have you knitting like you have been doing it all your life in no time at all.
This world-wide phenomenon is called “Wrap with Love” and all it entails is a whole lot of people sitting around and knitting squares that will then be transformed into blankets to be distributed to those who need them, especially those in colder climes where hypothermia strikes the underprivileged. It only takes 28 assembled squares to make one of these blankets.
The Grenfell ‘Wrap with Love’ annual campaign began on Wednesday morning at the Grenfell Library under the banner of Knit, Natter and Nibble and so far have taken possession of over 100 squares of wool and a few beautiful and warm blankets have already been created as a result.
This scene is repeated in libraries all around Australia and the Orange ABC (549) and nationally is one of the major supporters of the program.
