Think Spring…Gardening!

Posted by mcorreia on

Believe it or not, spring is coming soon (ACTUAL spring, not just spring on the calendar).  To get into the spirit of spring and have you looking forward to good weather and enjoying the outdoors, the library is offering several phenomenal gardening classes in the next several months.

The gardening series kicks off with a Master Gardener Class in Herb Gardening on Saturday, March 31, where for $5 per person, you can learn how to start and care for an herb garden and will be provided with the supplies to start your own small, beginner’s garden.

During the “Garden Essentials” class on Saturday, April 14, a professional landscape designer and cut-flower grower walks and talks us through gardening basics. There will be a seed-starting demonstration and you’ll go home with your very own dahlia plant to kick off the Spring season in style! ($5 class fee)

On Saturday, May 5, a Master Gardener will teach a class on growing flowers to attract butterflies, and all participants will leave with a small container of butterfly-attracting flowers. ($5 class fee)

The gardening series wraps up with “Container Gardening” class on May 19 –  you may think you don’t have space for a garden, but we’ll show you that you DO. ($10 class fee)

All classes meet from 10am-12pm.  Registration is required, so please call, stop in or register through our online calendar.

NEW at the library, at the request of a community member, we have added a jigsaw puzzle exchange.

Bring in a puzzle from home and trade it with one here.  Or just borrow one and bring it back when you’re done with it.

Donations of puzzles is greatly appreciated — just drop them off on the puzzle exchange shelves, which can be found near the new books in the upstairs of the library.

Cookbook Club

Posted by mcorreia on

Join us on the first Monday of each month at 1:00pm as we explore a new category of food and try new recipes.

Borrow a cookbook (optional) and try a new recipe at home.  Then bring the food you made and the recipe to the library to share and talk about your experience cooking the recipe.  If possible, please bring your recipe in ahead of time so we can make copies for everyone.  We will make and share a different kind of food each month.  Check the library’s online calendar for more information and to sign up.
