If you visit the library often, you may have noticed a few changes that are growing outside the building or should I say “blooming” outside the building?  Yes, this summer the staff decided it was time to infuse a change in the children’s reading garden located outside the craft room in the hopes of creating a beautiful “green” area for all to enjoy.  With almost a complete overhaul of previously planted shrubbery, the librarians and custodians used their “green thumbs” to harvest a thriving, summer harvest, complete with trellis, produce patches and free little library.  Although the space might seem small, we’ve managed to pack in a copious assortment of flowers and vegetables that provide a relaxing and comforting retreat for anyone all who visit.  If you are a patron who has enjoyed reading or having a snack in our garden in the past, we hope your experience will be even better now with freshly landscaped perennial blooms, healthy potted tomato pots and a fragrant mix of cooking herbs.  If you are curious what you might be seeing upon your next visit, here are a few of the crops which are nestled in are garden beds:
