Why Go: Stop by the library and view wood engravings by Anna Hogan that are on display in the library’s Reading Room. Creations by the Needle Arts Craft Group — including baby blankets, scarves, shrugs, camisoles, and more — also will be on display in the glass cases.
Where/When: Burbank Ice Arena, 51 Symonds Way, Reading, Friday, noon to 1:50 p.m., Sunday, 6-7:50 p.m.
