A "yarn bombing" took place this weekend at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library, but the masked "ninja knitters" came with good intentions -- to draw attention to the branch's 45th anniversary celebration.

In advance, the knitting group wrapped tree branches and poles on the library property with coats of colorful to reflect the festive spirit.

The anniversary celebration begins this month and a catalog of all the events taking place during this month is available at the library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road.

Those events include a scavenger hunt, an Instagram competition and a contest to find the resident that has been using the branch library the longest.

Fairfield Woods Branch Library Day will be held Sept. 27 with a range of activities, plus commemorative tee-shirts available for purchase.
