A member of the Howland Public Library’s knitting club, which meets weekly, has donated a hand-knit afghan to be raffled as a fundraiser for the library’s upcoming No Strings Marionettes performances. The drawing will take place on Monday, Nov. 16.

This year’s marionette shows, which will take place on Dec. 13 at the Howland Cultural Center, will be “Wasabi the Dragon” and “Scrooge: A Christmas Carol.”

The cream-colored afghan, which was created and donated by Barbara Verdesi, is on display at the library at 313 Main St. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and can be purchased at the front desk.
