Scandinavian stitching

Are you addicted to watching Nordic Noir?  A fan of Scandinavian crime drama such as The Killing, The Bridge, Wallander, The Eagle, Unit One or Anna Pihl?  In which the northern weather always seems to be bleak, dark and cold to match the melancholy of the setting?  Remember, our winter is coming and soon we too will feel the chill of bitter winds.  While you sitting immersed in these crime DVDs, why not prepare for the cooler weather by making something warm?  Or just try out some Nordic themed needlecrafts? You can reserve all of these titles through the One Card Network online catalogue, or enquire next time you visit the Library.
