Gayle Edelen of Jasper, youth services librarian and programming manager, chatted with Debbie Meyer of Dubois, not pictured, while crocheting hats for babies during Little Hats, Big Hearts at the Dubois Branch Library on Monday evening. The American Heart Association and The Children’s Heart Foundation are collecting hats to celebrate American Heart Month in February. The hats crocheted and knitted by Edelen, Meyer and other community members will benefit babies born at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Edelen and Meyer have both committed to making one hat each week next year.
