Kids' Garden Club
Kids of all ages and their families are invited to come to the Library and sign up as Garden Helpers for the 2016 season. Choose a day and time of week that works best for you (during library hours, if possible) and an adult will be there to help and advise. Help is needed to water, weed and keep planting throughout the growing season. The rewards are great! You get to watch your garden grow, harvest all kinds of foods as they mature, and then there's all that fresh air and (maybe even) sunshine!
Due to damage at the front entrance we will be using the Garden door entrance on Ball Street. Thank you for your patience. The book drop is open!
