Annual Courtyard Planting Day April 15, 2016

School's out on Friday April 15th!  So stop by the library 2-3 p.m. to help beautify the library's courtyard!  Every year, this annual living floral display cheers patrons of all ages during the spring and summer months.

Each child who plants an annual in a courtyard planter will get to write their name on a marker stick and place it into the soil to mark the spot to remember where they planed their plant.  Then they can come back later in the season and see how much their plant has grown!

After planting a flower, kids can plant bush bean and dwarf sunflower seeds to take home and watch grow.  They'll also be able to make small garden art using special craft foil.
